Ending Pandemics in Our Lifetime – Hosted by Skoll Global Threats Fund

Posted on by Laurie Garrett

Ebola, Zika, SARS … the world knows all too well that no one is safe from the threat of emerging infectious diseases. The scale and devastation posed by a real pandemic could reach millions of people and cost the world more than $60 billion. It will take all of us to prevent that from happening. From social entrepreneurs working on the frontlines of health to those working in technology and innovation, this work goes beyond traditional partnerships. Laurie Garrett joined a panel of leaders from the fields of global health and economic development at the 2017 Skoll World Forum for an inspiring discussion on how effective global and local collaboration can prevent the next pandemic.
