Center for Global Development: Three Big Lessons for The Next Pandemic Response
Jeremy Konyndyk, senior policy fellow at CGD, discusses a recent report that explores how policymakers responded to the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak in West Africa and outlines three lessons for the next pandemic response: “1. Outbreak response strategy does not scale in a linear way. … 2. An evolving response strategy requires a different configuration of actors and capabilities. … 3. Response at scale requires different leadership structures and competencies” (5/16).
