Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed our collective vulnerability, as the health of the global community has proven crucial to maintaining the health of individual communities. In essence, we are only as strong as our weakest link. In this policy brief, we present lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and propose measures to improve our response to future pandemics through equitable capacity building. This policy brief calls for the equitable distribution of medical goods and supplies, as well as an equitable and diversified application of research funding and focus.
