Headline: The first International Day of Preparedness for Epidemics is celebrated in a setting that many feared would be fulfilled
The old saying reminds us: prevention is better than cure, which in economic terms translates into investing in universal health coverage that has health systems better prepared for the possibility of any emergency. As the UN head points out, that investment costs much less than having to build new emergency units in hospitals and adopt peremptory economic measures.
