Global Health Security in China, Japan, and India assesses evolving global health security in three major Asian countries that adhere to the standards and targets in accordance with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The COVID-19 pandemic has put a newfound emphasis on the importance of global health security: the idea that countries must cooperate to address international public health threats while meeting varied domestic health care needs. Balancing cost, affordability, stakeholder demands, political ideology, and global economic pressures, all three countries have made significant advances in health law and policy over the past decade.
