Si l’on veut éviter une nouvelle pandémie, similaire à celle de la COVID-19, il est indispensable que les modalités de financement de la recherche et du développement s’inscrivent dans une approche holistique et intersectorielle, intégrée aux Objectifs de Développement Durable, et étroitement liée à la lutte contre le changement climatique. Une meilleure coordination entre les bailleurs internationaux, une flexibilité accrue dans les modalités de financement et une prise de conscience des avantages de la prévention des risques de maladies versus leur traitement en réaction sont indispensables.
Science is crucial to improving pandemic preparedness and prevention. It not only deepens our understanding of pathogen transmission and containment but also provides us with the flexibility required to adapt to changing circumstances. Relying on scientific evidence enables us to contain risks at the local level, minimize the delay between early warning and action, ensure the effectiveness and reliability of control measures, and expedite the development and deployment of safe treatments, thereby safeguarding public health. Read the call to action we publish today, jointly written by the PREZODE consortium, Marisa Peyre with Justin Vaïsse (Forum de Paris sur la Paix), Peter Sands (The Global Fund), and signed by high-level international scientists, decision-makers, civil society organizations, private actors, and international donors.
PREZODE, together with scientists, heads of NGOs, as well as committed writers and artists from the world over, signed an op-ed calling governments and policy makers to take effective measures to protect forest and to ensure a proper and safe management.
