Recent Ebola and Zika epidemics have tested and in some cases exposed the strategies that governments, global health NGOs and international organizations have in place to tackle major global health crises. In this episode, we look at the lessons learned from these health emergencies and ask whether the world is ready for when the next widespread pandemic hits. An influential panel of experts from the public sector, NGOs, foundations, academia and the private sector considers how the many different organizations and governments that are vital to preventing outbreaks, and limiting their toll when they occur, can best forge a unified response.
