[Editorial] Health security: the defining challenge of 2016

This end-of-year double issue of The Lancet is a moment to pause, reflect on the passing year, and consider how the journey through 2015, with its planned milestones and unforeseen global events, might shape the path ahead in 2016. This Year in Medicine crystallises the key moments of 2015: a year that continued to be dominated by the Ebola outbreak; adoption by nations of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, setting the health agenda for the next 15 years; and appalling acts of war and terrorism, which have seen murderous violence in, for example, Syria, Paris, and California.
