join the CSIS Global Health Policy Center on Friday, July 24 from1:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
EDT for a conversation with Dr. Anthony Fauci,
Director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious
Diseases at the National Institutes of Health and member of the
White House Coronavirus Task Force on Covid-19 in the United
States. The United States is in the midst of a worsening crisis,
with Covid-19 cases and deaths increasing in the Sun Belt, the
West, and many other parts of the United States. This begs the
question: what is the strategy for ensuring that the outbreak does
not spiral out of control in the United States? How can the United
States strengthen the basic public health capacities – test, trace,
and isolate – needed to slow the spread? What federal, state, and
local actions may be necessary to protect the American people and
safely reopen businesses, schools, and sporting events?
In this CSIS
Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security event, J. Stephen
Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director of the
CSIS Global Health Policy Center, will discuss these difficult
questions with Dr.
Anthony Fauci. They will also discuss the
development of a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine, including the
status and promise of Operation Warp Speed.
This event is made possible by the
generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
