Public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic

Listening to community concerns around vaccination must be at the heart of our public health response to the covid19 pandemic with Nick Coatsworth

There is enormous concern within the health community regarding public misinformation and the successful rollout of vaccines.

They are concerned about the psychological safety of medical professionals in the post-pandemic world.

They are worried about the emotional toll that long periods of separation from family and friends have on people from around the world.

Now more than ever, we should share our knowledge and experiences on an international scale.

We should not lose the sense of equity and the focus on standardisation.

And most importantly, we need to listen to what our community is saying and put that at the heart of what we do.
