12. Continues to learn, grow and transform

From the Spanish flu, the SARS outbreak and now COVID-19, what lessons have we learned - what consequences is our society facing?
Join us in a transparent conversation with experts in public health discussing the epidemiological perspective on pandemics, the evolving prevention & the medical perspective on the development of vaccines & treatments.

- Understand the conflicts of balancing economics and epidemiology practice, health policy & financial burdens against human lives
- Explore the burden on the healthcare systems, patients and communities
- Learn what potential consequences there are with industry’s fast-tracking through changing regulatory policies around developing vaccines & treatments to address an immediate unmet medical need. What scientific & societal paradigms will the future hold?

We should continue to learn and be aware - don't become complacent as lock down measures are being lifted. We hope you will bring critical questions for an interactive session!
