Alliance for Pandemic Preparedness

A new approach to pandemic prevention and response.

In our global response to COVID-19 we see the limitations of our past approaches to pandemic threats: largely reactive, disjointed, outdated, and unable to adjust rapidly to changing conditions. There is an urgent need for new approaches to pandemic prevention and response that are more strategic, linked and proactive.

The UW Alliance for Pandemic Preparedness offers a  proactive approach to pandemics that addresses the root causes of pandemic risk and accelerates effective action by working with partners in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) to achieve sustainable impact at large scale. The Alliance builds on the resources of our incredible scientific community and the leadership role that the University of Washington has taken in response to COVID-19 at local, national and international levels.
