The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the fragility of the public health systems that we take for granted. As the virulence of the pandemic begins to abate across much of the world, how exposed – or prepared – are counties for the impact of war, economic sanctions, political isolation and new migratory patterns on existing health structures and systems? 

This week on the podcast, our Health and Life Sciences team dives into the connection between geopolitical instability and the global health system. To get an inside perspective, they are joined by Dr. Ben Rolfe, the founding CEO of Communicable Disease Threats Initiative in Singapore.
