Today, on "What’s Health Got to Do with It?" we widen our lens to examine how health care functions globally.

Most doctors agree that epidemics and pandemics are a part of life. They have ambiguous beginnings and ends made all the more variable by our increasingly interconnected world. From COVID-19 to AIDS, malaria to Ebola health care systems across the globe struggle to manage the devastating effects of infectious disease. Innovations are met with equity issues, and safe treatments battle mounting misinformation.

Guests:

  • Julien Potet, Doctors Without Borders, policy adviser on neglected tropical diseases for MSF's Access Campaign.
  • Gregory Poland, head of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group.
