Event: Bio Digital

Topic: How will healthcare systems adapt to the Post-COVID-19 World?

Thanks to the incredible biomedical innovation taking place today, COVID-19 will hopefully soon be a thing of the past. However, the strain on resources due to the pandemic will be felt by healthcare systems across the globe for years to come. How will countries respond to this new reality to ensure patients maintain access to the latest biotech innovations? This panel will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare systems and how countries can better respond to the post-pandemic constraints on healthcare systems.
