Health: A Political Choice – Science, Solidarity, Solutions, the latest in a series of titles produced in collaboration with the World Health Organization, considers how to best protect the global community against the failings seen during the pandemic and seeks solutions grounded in science that work for all. The first publication in the series called for universal health coverage, while the second called on world leaders to unite in their response to COVID-19.
As in previous editions, the publication features bespoke articles from a prestigious line-up of authors. They include Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director-general, Amina J Mohammed, deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, and the Right Honorable Gordon Brown, WHO ambassador for global health financing and former prime minister of the United Kingdom.
The ‘Solidarity’ section explores investment in future health security and new approaches that may pave the road to Health for All. In the ‘Science’ section, authors including Carlos Alvarado Quesada, president of the Republic of Costa Rica, consider how the world can move forward with lessons from the past and why healthcare must transcend borders. The ‘Solutions’ section looks at how we can advance health by caring for nature and why we must take the threat of anti-microbial resistance seriously.
