Stories from humanity

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading” Lao Tzu.

The greatest threats we face in the 21st century are of our own making. At the beginning of 2018 I was invited to work on a major new project to raise awareness of Global Health Security with the hope that by publishing the reality we can influence the changes that are required.

This work aims to engage audiences in solutions, greater research and cooperation.

Given the shock and ongoing repercussions of the global pandemic caused by Covid 19, the Global Health Security project has never been more important.

In conjunction the the Telegraph Media Group I continue to travel extensively, reporting on health as an instrument in broader geopolitical issues, including:

• the spread of communicable diseases like Ebola, Zika and dangerous new strains of influenza

• non-communicable conditions including obesity, heart disease and diabetes

• the rapid rise of antibiotic resistance and new superbugs

• the growing threat of bio-terrorism

• social and political instability sown by war and natural disasters including drought and famine.

Given the cross border nature of these challenges, Global Health Security is an essential element of global health diplomacy.

In 2021 we will have a major exhibition of the work to date entitled Stories from Humanity.

This work is predominantly funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Their support comes without strings and The Telegraph Media Group retains full editorial control over all published content.
