“The high-level body that warned the world of the threat of a pandemic in 2019 — and how the world was unprepared for it — has come out with new recommendations that call for a new international framework for health emergency preparedness and response. The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board, co-chaired by Norway’s former Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland and former Secretary General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Elhadj As Sy, recommended that the heads of the United Nations, World Health Organization, and international financing institutions convene a U.N. Summit on Global Health Security in a new report published on Sept. 14…” (Ravelo, 9/15).

Additional coverage of the GPMB report is available from U.N. News and U.S. News & World Report.
