2021 PUBLIC HEALTH STORIES #21

Curated public health stories for this week from my reading shelf for Week 21 of 2021.

I.

“….a treaty needs to be crafted so that it can open the doors for governments, including heads of state, to be actively involved in strengthening health security. Sustained political will at the highest levels of government will be necessary to galvanise action and accountability to make the substantial financial, technical and political investments needed to improve our capacity to find, stop and prevent future pandemics. “

II.

A great example of transparency and good utilization of data visualization in communicating health data. Seattle and King County is always ahead of that curve.

“Native American tribes, among the hardest-hit by covid-19, are celebrating a pandemic success story.”

So many lessons learnt and actions that can be translated for other communities.
