EdX Lessons from Ebola: Preventing the Next Global Pandemic

Offered by: EdX

Instructor: Ashish Jha

Fall 2015

Overview

The current Ebola outbreak has made clear, like no other event in recent history, the fragility of existing health infrastructure. While responding to the current epidemic is critical, this is also the time to strategize about preventing the next global health catastrophe. This will require building strong, resilient health systems – systems that are high quality and engineered around patients and communities. This epidemic represents an opportunity to forge partnerships across borders and disciplines and demonstrate our commitment to value all human lives equally.

The course will focus on the global governance required to ensure high quality of care in anticipation of future epidemics and will feature content on both the local and global responses, as conveyed by responders and leading experts.
