Priorities for post-COVID-19 public health research, education and practice

The COVID-19 pandemic has swept the world, with more than four million people dying of the disease so far. COVID-19 is the defining public health crisis of a generation, and it should generate a full-scale assessment of how public health has fared in this moment – what we have done well and what we have not, and the implications this has for the future of public health.

This presentation addressed priorities for research, education, and practice agendas in the post-COVID-19 world.
