Join Professor Jeffrey Sachs and Ms María Fernanda Espinosa, and Professor K. Srinath Reddy for their discussion of The Lancet Commission Report on lessons for the future from the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the background to the Commission, possible origins of the virus that caused Covid-19, to the failures of international cooperation and national public-health-policy-making – failures that caused 18 million deaths worldwide. Most importantly, they dived into the Commission’s recommendations on how to prevent or confront future global health emergencies, starting with strengthening WHO as the core pillar of global policy.
