Today, more than any other time in living memory, infectious diseases and the way we manage and treat them, is at the forefront of human thought and innovation.

 

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. We had to learn new and often difficult ways of maintaining life's fundamental building blocks: family, community, connections, and health. In the face of this, we saw hope emerge through everyday heroes. By harnessing the power of resilience and agility, we quickly adapted and rose to the challenge, to tackle the pandemic. At an unprecedented pace, global and local experts, industry leaders, and researchers developed and launched testing solutions and highly effective vaccines to transform the way we deliver healthcare, all the while maintaining testing and treatment demands for other diseases. The transformation to meet the challenge of COVID-19 does not signify the end, but rather a new beginning.

 

Together, we can continue rising to the challenges we face in conquering SARS-CoV-2 and many other infectious diseases.
