Join the launch of a special collection from The BMJ of ten papers focused on this year’s PMAC theme of ‘COVID 19: Advancing towards an equitable and healthy world’.

The collection analyses the major issues arising from the pandemic, including the political economy of the response, the role of international institutions, overwhelmed health systems, the role of social determinants, the value of global indices of preparedness, and global megatrends and solidarity.

In this session, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from Dr Viroj Tangcharoensathien, Dr Jesse Bump, Prof Göran Tomson, Dr Lauren Paremoer and Prof Fran Baum about their work and participate in a discussion facilitated by Dr Kamran Abbasi, Executive Editor of The BMJ. 

This collection was produced with the kind support of PMAC.

This session aims to:

1. Explore the drivers of the COVID-19 pandemic

2. Learn from the global response 

3. Recommend how preparedness and response can be improved
