As debates about the future of the World Health Organization rage on, the Covid-19 pandemic is a reminder of the vital importance of global public health institutions. What lessons can we draw from the current pandemic from WHO’s performance and previous efforts to reform it? What principles should guide WHO’s missions and tools to deal with pandemics? Could reforms centre around having a narrower mission and creating better incentives to prevent contagions from spreading globally using stronger legal and financial tools? How can we achieve better coordination among the many diverse actors on the global health stage?
Join Lucie Gadenne, Maitreesh Ghatak, Rebecca Katz, Clare Wenham and Erik Berglöf in this webinar discussion.
