How can the United States improve the public health response to the pandemic with new or existing leadership? How will the new administration tackle public health challenges more broadly?

In this Watson/SPH discussion, we will take a closer look at how the US election will impact international relations, and how we navigate the changing landscape of global health. Speakers include scholars and practitioners with expertise in Africa, India, China, and more.
