The COVID-19 pandemic has called attention to the need to fundamentally reform global public health systems. The post-pandemic period could afford strategic and forward-looking governments an opportunity to dramatically reform healthcare infrastructure. By investing and innovating in research and public education, we can prepare countries for future public health crises and save lives. 

Well-funded research, public education campaigns, and progressive responses to global public health needs will also generate cascading benefits across and through our other Summit themes, creating virtuous cycles of recovery: just transition to a greener economy, more equitable and inclusive societies, and better sustainability.
