Appendix B Workshop Statement of Task A n ad hoc committee under the auspices of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will plan a 1.5-day public workshop that will examine the lessons that have been learned and applied, and the world’s current readiness to prevent, detect, and respond to pandemic influenza and other potential novel diseases from a century of outbreaks. Workshop participants will reflect on the challenges of improving readiness; discuss how to move beyond barriers; assess how the latest advances in global, regional, and national governance structures, systems, and capacities to fight against the next influenza pandemic can make a difference; and explore areas that need more work, including immediate and short-term actions that will have the greatest impact on global health security by 2030. Specifically, this workshop will feature invited presentations and discussions on topics including • Recent progress achieved in monitoring global health security and pandemic preparedness at the national and global levels, including advances in developing national action plans stemming from the International Health Regulations and the Joint External Evalua- tion, building strong public health capacities that incorporate a One Health approach, and developing risk analysis and assessment tools to guide resource allocation; • Critical challenges and opportunities in developing and evaluating medical countermeasures, including seasonal vaccines, a universal 183

Workshop speakers and discussants will contribute perspectives from government, academia, and private and nonprofit sectors from the local to global levels.

In November 2018, an ad hoc planning committee at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine planned two sister workshops held in Washington, DC, to examine the lessons from influenza pandemics and other major outbreaks, understand the extent to which the lessons have been learned, and discuss how they could be applied further to ensure that countries are sufficiently ready for future pandemics. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from both workshops.
