Healthcare systems outmatched by new human security challenges

Health is fundamental to human security, which is concerned with protecting the “vital core of all human lives in ways that enhance human freedoms and human fulfilment,” and people’s ability to exercise their freedoms depends on their health. In other words health directly constitutes people’s wellbeing and enables people to exercise agency (that is, the ability to pursue what they value in life). In contrast, ill health not only diminishes wellbeing; it also limits people’s agency. Threats to health present some of the most critical challenges to human security.
