Lessons on how to face future health emergency threats are still emerging from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and many challenges remain to ensuring effective, efficient, and equitable global governance and financing for pandemic preparedness in the future.

Earlier this year, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences released a report to take stock of lessons learned from past efforts to combat common threats and international cooperation failures in the face of COVID-19, and CGD has long examined the role and effectiveness of global institutions in advancing global health security

Join CGD and the Academy for a conversation on the intersections between the current state of financing for pandemic preparedness via the new Pandemic Fund at the World Bank, pandemic treaty negotiations, and the role of effective multilateral, multistakeholder collaboration in driving a reform agenda forward.
