MatchPoints Conference: Global Health Challenges and Solutions

With frightening clarity, the Covid-19 pandemic reminded the world of how quickly a
local outbreak can morph into a pandemic, with devastating consequences for people’s
health and the world’s economies. And with the escalating climate crisis and
increasing population pressure, the risk of similar events will only increase.

But pandemics are not the only global health challenge facing our world. Climate change, pollution, lifestyle diseases
and inequality are all factors that intersect to create new global health challenges – and intensify existing ones.
