Abstract:

Enhancing pandemic readiness is necessary. The world is still insufficiently prepared. Responding rapidly to outbreaks delivers better outcomes. The G7 Pact for Pandemic Readiness is a focused action building upon past and current G7 initiatives to strengthen global pandemic readiness. It thematically centers on collaborative surveillance and predictable rapid response. The Pact is a strategic and conceptual exercise to decisively improve implementation, coordination, and cooperation of G7 actions in the area of collaborative surveillance and predictable and rapid response. It will also consider existing workstreams with a view to avoid overlaps and duplication. The Pact will advance a global network approach to enhance pandemic surveillance and response capabilities and capacities.

Lunch will be provided
This in-person event is open to Harvard ID holders only
