Are we prepared for the next influenza pandemic outbreak?
ESWI and the Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House kindly invite you to participate in the stakeholders conference on influenza pandemic preparedness on 22 January 2019 in London.
A hundred years ago, a pandemic of influenza virus stunned the world, killing over 50 million people worldwide. We remain vulnerable to such outbreaks, and due to the fast evolution of the virus, globalization and intercontinental travel, outbreaks on the scale of the 1918 pandemic would even today have a devastating effect. But lessons learned from the past, a century of research and international cooperation should help prepare us for future pandemics.
