Preparing for the Next Pandemic: Lessons on Strengthening Health Systems and Supply Chains

The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the criticality of building resilient health systems, supported by strong supply chains that provide frontline health workers with access to the medicines, healthcare commodities and equipment they need to fight health emergencies. Now, we face the monumental task of not only rebuilding our health systems — but also ensuring they are better prepared and equipped to withstand future crises.

On Tuesday, Sept. 14, Devex will host an ecosystem event on the sidelines of the 76th annual United Nations General Assembly. This event, convened by the United Nations World Food Programme, the International Atomic Energy Agency and the United Nations Population Fund in partnership with Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, will share experiences from the agencies’ COVID-19 responses in order to highlight ways the international development community can seize this window of opportunity to future-proof health systems for people everywhere and to strengthen supply chains.
