Strengthen and adapt health systems to address COVID-19


Health systems tend to be slow to react. Christian Pitter, FHI 360's Director of Infectious Diseases and Health Systems, says we must utilize the COVID-19 epidemic and crisis to strengthen global health systems. The global health community needs to adapt the lessons and successes learned from combating other health threats, such as the fight against HIV. Confronting COVID-19 and future health threats will require ongoing funding and the political will to address global health challenges.
