Putting People at the Center of Pandemic Preparedness
Our report focuses on the single most important factor in pandemic preparedness—people. By investing in both communities and the health care workforce, we can fight the pandemics of today while building preparedness capacity against the pandemics of tomorrow. Read key takeaways from the full report below:
- Recruiting and training a “field force” of millions of community health workers in the coming years will pay dividends, not only in addressing current health priorities but also in building robust preparedness against future pandemics.
- Pandemic preparedness is not a technocratic endeavor. Vaccines alone can’t defeat pandemics. Other components like trust and people are essential.
