WHY FOCUS ON PANDEMICS NOW?
Decades of progress against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria is stalling.
The world is not prepared for a new or re-emerging disease that could kill tens of millions of people and cost upwards of $3 trillion.
Climate change will magnify the deadly impact and risks of infectious disease.
Global inequality is rising and deadly epidemics drive economic disparities while harming the global economy.
Political leadership with rapid action could turn these trends around.
“Infectious disease represents one of the most potent risks facing humankind.”
