Today in Geneva, the World Bank International Working Group on Financing Preparedness (IWG) released its long-awaited report on pandemic financing, which recommends aggressive action to analyze and finance gaps in country capability to address biological threats, whether naturally occurring, deliberate, or accidental.
One of five advance reviewers of the report, NTI's Beth Cameron said, "This report and its aggressive recommendations to assess, measure, and finance gaps will save lives by stopping outbreaks at the source. NTI is proud to support the Global Health Security Agenda."
NTI, in partnership with the Center for Health Security at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, and The Economist Intelligence Unit, are developing a Global Health Security Index, which will assess a country's technical, financial, economic and political capabilities to prevent, detect, and respond to epidemic threats with international implications.
NTI's Beth Cameron was one of five advance reviewers of newly released World Bank report on pandemic financing.
