Some health crises appear suddenly and require swift assessments and strong responses; others come into focus more slowly and are striking in their complexity and intractability. The United Nations (UN) has previously convened high-level meetings and special sessions to focus specifically on health issues on only three occasions: to address the threats posed by HIV, noncommunicable diseases, and Ebola.
