This paper outlines the present global order for preventing and responding to global health risks, especially the role of the International Health Regulations (IHR), a unique, legally binding governance mechanism that aims to protect all countries; gives a brief analysis of the significant gaps that emerged in response to the Ebola crisis; and discusses how the Ebola crisis reopened the discussion on the framing of global health security. It further presents a range of governance proposals that have recently emerged to strengthen the global health security regime.
