Strengthening health system resilience during a crisis: Is it possible?

June 30, 2020 by PATH

As the world responds to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, solutions are being quickly implemented to solve for the here and now. But health systems must support efforts beyond the pandemic. In this live forum, we explore how thoughtful investments made today can be leveraged not only to respond to COVID-19, but also to mitigate the worst-case scenarios of secondary deaths and morbidity and to lay a foundation for more resilient health systems that are better prepared to withstand future stressors.
