Breakout Session

How Companies Can Prepare for the Next Public Health Crisis

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring

Many companies were aware before the COVID-19 pandemic hit that a global pandemic arising from animal-human contact could happen—and that it was likely. Yet few companies were prepared with action plans when the real crisis unfolded. What lessons are we learning from this pandemic that can help us better prepare for the next public health crisis? What opportunities did businesses find to be resilient, and where did they face the greatest challenges? How might businesses, together with policymakers and civil society, learn from the current crisis to take preventive steps and avert or mitigate future disasters?
