Epidemics That Didn’t Happen

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join Resolve to Save Lives for a dynamic conversation to mark the release of the second edition of “Epidemics that Didn’t Happen.” This virtual event and new report will illustrate how global and local investments in preparedness, combined with swift, strategic responses by public health authorities, can transform the trajectory of outbreaks, saving lives and preventing suffering.

The latest “Epidemics that Didn’t Happen” report celebrates successful outbreak responses from around the world that demonstrate the returns—in lives saved—of investing in preparedness and response systems. These examples—from Brazil, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Indonesia, India and Tanzania—are a testament to the power of preparedness and a roadmap for future success in preventing epidemics.

COVID-19 and recent outbreaks of monkeypox and polio have highlighted how vulnerable the world is to infectious diseases. But every day, public health workers stop epidemics before they start.
