As the UK emerges from its latest lockdown, our understanding of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic is becoming clearer. More data is providing us with the information we need to understand how we’ve got to where we are today and, positively, the success of the therapeutic and vaccine response.
The submission deadline for The Trinity Challenge – a prize fund of up to £10m, supported by Legal & General, that will fund solutions to better prepare us for future global pandemics and localised epidemics – is approaching. Nigel Wilson, Legal & General CEO, explains that our part in the coalition that forms The Trinity Challenge is pivotal in building a better-prepared future: “The private sector must play a key role in driving innovations to protect us from future public health crises, ensuring that never again will there be an event which brings about illness, suffering and economic disruption on the scale of COVID-19.”
Ahead of the 15th April 2021 submission deadline, we explore the valuable role of data in preparing for the health emergencies of tomorrow, and hear from Hala Audi, CEO of The Trinity Challenge.
