Jeffrey Sachs

In this special episode, join Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Ms. María Fernanda Espinosa, and Professor K. Srinath Reddy for their discussion of The Lancet Commission Report on lessons for the future from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Together, they discuss the background to the Commission and the key findings after two years of research. They discuss the possible origins of the virus that causes Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2; including the possibilities that the virus emerged from laboratory research or from an infected animal in the marketplace. They discuss failures of international cooperation and national public-health policy-making - failures that have contributed to 18 million deaths worldwide from Covid-19.  Most importantly, they discuss the Commission’s recommendations for the future on how to prevent or confront future global health emergencies, most importantly by strengthening WHO as the core pillar of global policy.
