Pandemic Preparedness Summit: Industry Observations & Policy Solutions

White Paper | September 2022

HIDA’s latest Thought Leaders white paper, Pandemic Preparedness Summit: Industry Observations & Policy Solutions, summarizes the findings of HIDA’s first-ever Pandemic Preparedness Summit, held in June 2022 as part of the annual Washington Summit and Fly-In. Stakeholders from both the public and private sector discussed mutual challenges, shared industry observations and offered policy solutions surrounding three key topics – supply chain collaboration, communication protocols, and technology & data solutions. Among the industry observations in the white paper are the need to:

  • Build collaborative capacity
  • Understand the causes of product scarcity
  • Nurture connections between stakeholders

The white paper advances several policy solutions on the issues of warm production lines, sending clear production signals, and creation of a critical products list.
