The Global Health Security (GHS) Index is the comprehensive assessment that benchmarks health security and related capabilities across the 195 countries that make up the States Parties to the International Health Regulations.

The GHS Index is a project of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHU) and was developed with The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). These organizations believe that, over time, the index will spur changes in national health security and improve international capability to address risks related to infectious disease outbreaks that can lead to international epidemics and pandemics.

It assesses countries across six categories, 34 indicators, and 85 sub-indicators. The findings are drawn from open source information that answered 140 questions across the categories.

The full report offers 33 recommendations to address the gaps identified by the index.
