Innovation, access and partnering: Lessons learnt from COVID-19 to better prepare for future pandemics

In this event, a roundtable will discuss what we have learned from the pandemic and how we can improve.

Research event, Roundtable Invitation only
17 April 2022 TO 18 April 2022 — 9:00AM TO 8:00PM
Chatham House 10 St James’s Square London SW1Y 4LE United Kingdom

Two years into the pandemic, everyone who has been involved in the COVID-19 response is still learning every day how to do more and better. The world was woefully unprepared for this pandemic and, collectively, we have worked to outrun a virus that has so far proven faster than we have been. SARS-CoV-2 has evolved, persisted and proved predictions wrong. There are many unanswered questions, and our mutual knowledge is changing and adapting along with the virus.

Chatham House, in collaboration with the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA), will host an in-person, two-day, invitation-only roundtable discussion under the CH rule. The event will examine the lessons learned so far, focusing on the following themes: innovation, access and partnering.
