Sustainable Financing for Preparedness Action Package Working Group
Multiple pandemics, numerous outbreaks, thousands of lives lost and billions of dollars of national income wiped out—all since the turn of this century, in barely 17 years—and yet the world’s investments in pandemic preparedness and response remain woefully inadequate.
Peter Sands, From Panic and Neglect to Investing in Health Security 2018 Report
The current COVID-19 pandemic and numerous outbreaks before now have illustrated the enormous impact infectious diseases have on both health and finance sectors. While we have identified gaps in preparedness, we’re missing the resources needed to address them and maintain capacities to prevent the next pandemic threat. There economic case is clear— sustained country-level investments to establish and maintain global health security capacity in support of the International Health Regulations and other global health security frameworks are needed to help prevent and mitigate future infectious disease threats.
