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. Specifically, pathogen-specific work, platform-based technology and prototype-pathogen efforts have improved.
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.”
