Health and security concerns raised by the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa pushed global public health towards the top of the international security agenda in 2014 (see section I). Shortcomings in national and international preparedness for managing emerging infectious disease threats were evident, and the response capacities of some national public health systems in West Africa and of international organizations (e.g. Médecins Sans Frontières) were stretched beyond their limits. Furthermore, delays and inefficiencies in response efforts occurred as states and international bodies, most notably the World Health Organization (WHO), worked to agree priorities on how to implement a more coordinated approach. These efforts also underscored the uneven implementation of the WHO’s revised 2005 International Health Regulations.
