Default $1 per person per year for pandemic preparation


Investing less then $0.72 a year for each person would make the world far more
resilient to potentially devastating infectious disease pandemics
Pandemics cost the world more than $58 billion each year
[in average ?]

3 billion stg a year needed to prepare for disease threats
[stg could be British Pound (sterling)

report by the Commission on Creating a Global Health Risk Framework for the Future,
published on Wednesday [2016/01/13]

The commission's experts estimated that at least one new disease pandemic will
emerge in the next 100 years, with a 20 percent chance of four or more in that time.

Peter Sands of the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for business and government at the
Harvard Kennedy school chaired the commission

strong, independent centre under the umbrella of the World Health Organization (WHO),
which would lead outbreak preparedness and response
($1 = 0.6924 pounds , 3B pounds=$4.33B = 7.4B*$0.59
