COVID-19: Where Are We Now and What Are the Future Trends?, March 16

Category : News/Events

Join us for a virtual interactive event on 16 March 2022 at 1:00–2:00 pm EST with experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), when they will survey the latest information as well as elaborate on the following issues.

Our guest speakers will offer their outlook on the current COVID-19 situation and highlight some upcoming trends. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist at the WHO, will provide an update on the global pandemic and highlight how science can contribute to a better future. Also, Dr. Bruce Aylward, Senior Advisor to the Director-General and Lead of the ACT Accelerator Executive Hub at the WHO, will discuss “The ACT-Accelerator: a pathway to equity and ending the pandemic” — how a transformed WHO, and partners, drove the fastest, most coordinated and successful global effort in history to develop tools to fight a disease. The discussion will be moderated by Stewart Simonson, Assistant Director-General at WHO’s New York UN office.

Among other issues covered will be: how is WHO helping to fight COVID-19 and why do we need WHO, and why should we be concerned about global vaccine inequity. The discussion will also look at unequal distribution of vaccines, treatments and tests around the globe, contributing to the emergence of new COVID variants, which could also undermine the global economic recovery.

Be sure to attend and find out how you can engage as well as support the COVID-19 response.
