Almost one hundred years ago, the 1918 Influenza pandemic killed between 50 and 100 million people worldwide. In 2017, is the world better prepared to prevent and respond to an infectious disease pandemic? How can governments better coordinate with academia, private industry, and international organizations to mitigate pandemic risk?
We will explore these questions, from both an academic and policy perspective, in order to further our understanding of how to enhance international efforts to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease pandemics that threaten Global Health Security.
