Lessons from COVID-19: Building A Stronger Global Health System

May 26, 2020

What can we learn from the global response thus far to the COVID-19 pandemic?

Last year, during the UN General Assembly in NYC, Foreign Policy brought together an international group of health officials and leading experts to address the growing threat antimicrobial resistance poses to global health.

Now, as the world grapples with the response to and fall-out from the COVID-19 pandemic, Foreign Policy reconvened a global roundtable of leading health experts and policy makers to assess progress to date, identify critical gaps in health infrastructure, and help chart a path forward. The dialogue will examine the unique challenges faced by different regions and ways they have responded to the pandemic. What lessons can be gleaned from these evolving strategies against COVID-19? How do we strengthen public health systems for the future and ensure they meet the needs of vulnerable populations?
