Covid-19 will top the agenda at this month’s G7 summit in Cornwall. As some countries lift restrictions and near the completion of vaccine rollouts, others face severe outbreaks or progress being derailed by new variants. No country will escape from the Covid crisis alone - a coordinated global plan which covers vaccination, surveillance and health infrastructure is essential.

To discuss how world leaders can meet these challenges and put in place long term plans for handling the threat of Covid-19, this Institute for Government event will see an expert panel draw on a series of round-tables organised by the IfG and Wellcome Trust.

The panel will include: 

Tom Whipple, Science Editor of The Times

Sir Suma Chakrabarti, former Permanent Secretary at DfID and the Ministry of Justice and incoming chair of the Overseas Development Institute. President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development from 2012 – 2020

Dame Una O’Brien, Former Permanent Secretary UK Department of Health; Member of Council, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

The event will be chaired by Alex Thomas, Programme Director at the Institute for Government
