Erik Berglof and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on Investing in Global Health and Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed weaknesses in public health systems across the world and reinforced the need to develop sustainable, inclusive and resilient health infrastructure—the backbone of global health security.

In financing the Infrastructure for Tomorrow (#i4t) to respond to the needs of our members and clients, AIIB will gradually expand its capacity, role and value-add in social infrastructure and other productive sectors. In a fireside chat, AIIB Chief Economist Erik Berglof and WTO Director General Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala discuss the opportunities for strengthening global health systems.
