The public has come to expect great things of Bill Gates over the years. After all, he built his reputation on his ability to solve problems. In this talk, he doesn’t disappoint. Not only does Gates, a philanthropist and co-founder of Microsoft, sound a critical alarm – that humankind is not ready to tackle a deadly contagion – but he also proposes a shopping list of solutions. getAbstract recommends Gates’s perceptive oration, delivered with aplomb, to health care workers, policy makers and anyone on the front line when the next global epidemic strikes.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why global epidemics present the biggest threat to global health,
- How the Ebola outbreak highlighted flaws in medical planning and response, and
- What the world’s health organizations can do to prepare for the next global epidemic.
