The concept of “health security” has long been controversial in global health protection efforts. Disadvantages and interests highlight the continuing failure to address political and economic structural problems that generate inequalities and offer neither health nor security to the majority of the world's population. While all pandemics are unique in their level of transmission and scope of impact, the COVID-19 pandemic is the most profound global crisis of the 21st century, affecting nearly every country in the world. The COVID-19 pandemic is a major new challenge to health systems worldwide. There is a need to provide the services needed to manage the pandemic while maintaining and improving access to essential health care. Many countries face existing health workforce challenges, including shortages, maldistribution, and mismatches of needs and skills.
