Getting Ahead of Global Pandemics

The 1980s HIV crisis brought pandemic preparedness strategies that have grown for decades—and built a foundation of basic science tools and knowledge that could be applied to research on SARS, Zika and Ebola.

Citing the work of Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) to “prevent, detect and respond” to threats, Hilary D. Marston, MD, MPH; Catharine I. Paules, MD; and Anthony S. Fauci, MD of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases emphasize that “the biomedical research community must maintain its critical role in comprehensive pandemic preparedness.”
