India continues its battle against COVID19, with the second wave being the worst outbreak since the advent of the pandemic. The second wave has infiltrated the nation, including rural areas that were to an extent protected during the first wave. The healthcare systems and personnel are stretched, and the only way to enable a quick return to normalcy is to vaccinate people as soon as possible.
Due to the pandemic, the concept of resilience has rapidly evolved to include not only resilience of health systems but also of businesses, workplaces, leadership, community, lifestyle and collaborations. This has opened up new areas of partnerships and collaborations. It is heartening to see the government and industry working in solidarity towards battling this pandemic which has significantly alleviated the impact of the pandemic.
To identify and discuss post-pandemic structure and highlight emerging imperatives towards building a strong public health system in India, CII is organizing its annual flagship Public Health Summit 2021 with the theme ‘Emerging Imperatives in Strengthening Public Health for India’ on 28 June 2021 beginning at 1030 Hrs over a virtual platform.
The conference will gather influential voices and experts from both within and beyond the sector. It will see a meaningful mix of Industry experts, senior policy makers, ministers, and decision makers from India and internationally.
