Rethinking Public Health in an Age of Pandemics

ISSN

Over the past 50 years, over 300 new infectious pathogens have either newly emerged or else re-emerged into new territory where they have never been seen before, from Ebola in West Africa and Zika in the Americas to new kinds of avian influenza and super-drug-resistant bacteria. Such pathogens often affect women  is proportionately, thanks to patriarchal cultural norms, biological differences, and social inequities that heighten women’s  risk of exposure and of suffering more from severe diseases, compared to men. Experts are bracing themselves for a catastrophic pandemic – one that would make one billion people sick, kill 165 million, and cost the global economy trillions of dollars. The conventional wisdom is that this rising threat is primarily a  biomedical problem, to be solved by scientists and clinicians. Because of the pathways that new pathogens are exploiting today, however, biomedical defenses are unlikely to be sufficient. Society-wide, multi-sectoral  responses will be required.
