[Comment] Financing preparedness at a national level

For far too long, the approach to pandemics has been one of panic and neglect: throwing money and resources at the problem when a serious outbreak occurs; then neglecting to sustain funding of preparedness when the news headlines move on. The result has been far too many lives lost and too much damage to human livelihoods. As news of new cases of Ebola virus disease in the DR Congo1 shows, the threat of deadly pathogens is ever present. New outbreaks will occur, but by investing in preparedness—in prevention, detection, containment, and control—their frequency and impact can be reduced.
