Health security in times of pandemic - lessons learned and way ahead

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it clear that health situations of national scope can only be managed through the close cooperation of the public health sector and military health support resources. For example, the large-scale vaccination campaign against Covid-19 would simply have been unthinkable without this interaction. To this end, a recent document from the World Health Organization calls for the development of a national civil-military health network based on a strategic plan to build civil-military capabilities to address large-scale health situations. On the panel, we will discuss this approach.
