Fighting Pandemics | 2020 and Beyond
Virtual Panel on the Future of Infectious Disease Product Development and Pandemic Response with Dr Fauci and Dr Swaminathan

Moderated by:
Betsy McKay
Senior Writer, The Wall Street Journal

As the world grapples with COVID-19, TB Alliance is convening a virtual panel session to reflect on lessons learned from 20 years of infectious disease drug development and to solicit insights from esteemed global health experts on the front lines of public health management, funding, and policy.

This discussion will focus on how to shape durable approaches that enable local, national, and global institutions to manage infectious disease outbreaks effectively and rapidly. Beyond an emergency response, this includes developing the diagnostics, drugs, vaccines, and public health management tools needed to find, treat, and prevent health threats.

Speakers will offer perspectives on COVID-19 in the context of learnings from product development efforts for enduring pandemics including tuberculosis, malaria and HIV/AIDS, as well as share ideas on how to effectively organize, fund and coordinate the research and product development that is urgently needed for infectious disease control. The panel will invite perspectives from multilateral health organizations, the United States, and emerging economies with high burdens of infectious disease.
