NTI Reviews Report from World Bank International Working Group on Financing Pandemic Preparedness
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.
