Event Details

Pandemic Preparedness: The Public-Private Research and Response Infrastructure

As current and past experience has demonstrated, effective and timely responses to emergent public health emergencies and pandemic threats – Ebola, H1N1, SARS, Zika, etc. – require the coordination and collaboration of numerous governmental public health agencies, non-profits, private industry and other important stakeholders.  Our program, part of our CLSA Thought Leaders series, will serve to examine these critical partnerships, how our nation’s pandemic preparedness and response infrastructure functions, and how it can be improved, including the role of industry.
