The COVID-19 pandemic has tested our modern public health infrastructure like never before. Why have some nations successfully contained the virus, while others have failed? How can we use these insights to better prepare for and prevent future pandemics?
On January 12-13, 2021, join health, science, and policy leaders at the Futures Forum on Preparedness to debut groundbreaking research on the global COVID-19 response and reimagine the future of public health.
Join us to unveil research on 23 nations’ COVID-19 responses, undertaken by 78 researchers from 47 institutions, that outlines lessons learned and recommendations to improve public health interventions. We will also debut Health Security Net, the most comprehensive collection of pandemic preparedness policy ever published, containing over 1,200 reports chronicling 25 years.
Join us to sign up for working groups focused on key topics related to pandemic preparedness—such as improving learning and accountability and building trust in public health systems—and to share your own views for additional groups you want to join or lead.
Finally, join us to learn about a new challenge opportunity for local governments, public health systems, and other institutions to propose how they could improve public health trust—and earn resources for doing so, particularly for securing key talent.
The virtual forum is free and open to the public.
The forum has ended and registration is closed. We will have options to sign up for additional opportunities soon.
