The future of health

Foster sustainable health systems

The way COVID-19 has disrupted economies, societies and health shows it to be a significant systemic hazard. The way it came about – emerging from previous zoonoses to become established as a human disease – reflects social, economic and environmental determinants deeply rooted in the unsustainable prevailing model of global development.

This, together with other current concerns such as the climate crisis and extreme inequity, calls upon the international community to build back better and increase preparedness for future global health crises.

The health sessions will examine conceptual frameworks and the role of STI (Science, Technology and Innovation) to understand the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and ways to combat it, including questions related to the overall dynamics of interfaces between STI, society and policies.
