Post-Pandemic Recovery: Global Health and the Economy

Post-Pandemic Recovery: Global Health and the Economy

October 18 at 8:00 am PDT/11:00 am EDT

The 2021 Milken Institute Global Conference will open with welcoming remarks from Milken Institute CEO, Michael Klowden, followed by a presentation from Harris Poll CEO, John Gerzema on the release of The Milken Institute Harris Poll 2021 Listening Project, examining priority issues of global citizenry and identifying the types of business leaders we need to both drive growth and foster a more just world.

These livestreamed opening remarks will be followed by a panel discussion on Post-Pandemic Recovery: Global Health and the Economy.

The COVID-19 pandemic and its accompanying economic challenges have been felt around the world. The recovery has begun, but to date those efforts have produced asymmetrical results. Alongside an intensifying effort to quickly vaccinate as many people as possible, significant resources are being put behind reinvigorating economies and advancing recovery plans. How is the complex relationship between the public and private sectors working to increase investment, expand infrastructure, and improve health and economic outcomes? This panel will explore what innovations, technologies, and partnerships are being leveraged to accelerate recovery at the local, national, and global levels, while also addressing what more can be done to ensure an equitable recovery
