Join us and leading allies Thursday, October 28for our next Web-In: “The Campaign for a Global Fund to Pandemic Proof the Planet” will going to dive into our policy vision to prevent future pandemics through the formation of a new “Fund for Global Health Security and Pandemic Prevention and Preparedness”. In the discussion, we will address the question of why such a fund is needed and unpack how this mechanism will dismantle legacies of oppression in global health, and focus on passage of the historic International Pandemic Preparedness and COVID-19 Relief Act of 2021 (Senate Bill 2297). This major, bipartisan bill launches a global pandemic fund, invests in health systems, and vaccinates the world in 2022.
We are excited to welcome our guest panelists:
Ashley Arabasadi MSc, Management Sciences for Health, Chair of the Global Health Security Roundtable
Paul Davis, Right to Health Action
Heather Flynn, Senior Staffer, Senate Foreign Relations Committee and principle Democratic author of Senate Bill 2297
Neil Vora MD, Pandemic Prevention Fellow at Conservation International
We must prevent new disease spillovers, not simply contain them. Historically, our global containment strategies have prioritized wealthy countries and left low-income countries to fend for themselves against diseases. RSVP below and we hope to see you there!
