The RSC Policy Briefing entitled “Beyond the COVID-19 Crisis: Building on Lost Opportunities in the History of Public Health” is now freely and publicly available here.
“COVID-19 is not the first pandemic we have faced and it won’t be the last. History shows the best way to prepare for emergencies is to invest effectively in public health in advance. This paper draws on the lessons of outbreaks past and present to show how we can build resilience, preparedness, and greater health equity,” said Esyllt Jones, Chair of the Working Group.
The RSC has prepared Policy Briefings and other resources to ensure open access to independent, evidence-based science for Canadians.
