Local Communities’ Overlooked Role in the Fight against Pandemics

In the wake of the Wuhan coronavirus global emergency, the world’s focus turned to China and other nations to see how their governments were preventing further spread of the disease. Abt’s James White dives into a key element in pandemic prevention that is frequently overlooked: the mobilizing of local communities.

White provides solutions to bridging this gap.
