Countries must work together to tackle global health risks, England's outgoing chief medical officer has said.

Axar.az reports citiing foreign media.

In her final annual report, Prof Dame Sally Davies said focusing on domestic issues could risk failing to control global threats such as Ebola.

And she said learning from other countries would also ensure the NHS was not left behind.

After nine years as CMO, she is to become Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge.

Prof Davies said: "Investing in global health is the smart thing to do because it is in our mutual interest. It creates a better world for us and for future generations.

"It helps to keep our population safe.

"We should invest in systems and solutions that contribute to making health more equitable, secure and sustainable.

"What we learn abroad will improve our NHS and support our domestic efforts to make sure no-one in the UK is left behind."
