Report of the scientific task force on preventing pandemics
The Coalition’s academic affiliates at Harvard C-CHANGE and the Harvard Global Health Institute recently hosted a Scientific Task Force to Prevent Pandemics at the Source.
This Task Force has released a new report outlining the strong scientific foundations for taking actions to stop the next pandemic by preventing the spillover of pathogens from animals to people.
The report provides recommendations for research and actions to forestall new pandemics that have largely been absent from high-level discussions about prevention, including a novel call to integrate conservation actions with strengthening healthcare systems globally.
