Organized By

The coronavirus has demonstrated that health systems resilience is key to face sanitary crisis. What are the strategies needed to better prepare, manage and learn from past and current pandemics to enhance resilience? A dialogue with policy makers will help us address the needs to refocus care to out-patient settings, to improve the value of care and to reflect on early learnings from COVID-19.

Some of the dimensions that will be covered include :

  • Common definition, dimensions and understanding of resilience and sustainability
  • Key enablers for building resilience and sustainability
  • Policy recommendations and innovative solutions
  • Alignment and cross-collaborations
