The Pandemic and the Future of Public Health: Surviving COVID-19 and Preparing for the Next Crisis
Earlier this year, COVID-19 tore through long-term care facilities in B.C. and across Canada, leaving a trail of death and shock in its wake. The pandemic exposed the crisis of elder care in our society, a crisis exacerbated by privatization and precarious low-paid work in this vital sector. The pandemic has also shown there remain big gaps in our public health care system, from preventative health to pharma and dental care and elder care––to the more general failure as compared to jurisdictions that have more successfully driven down COVID-19. The events of the past year have exposed Canada as far from the ideal of truly universal and comprehensive health care.

Join the SFU's Institute for the Humanities for an expert online panel presentation and discussion on the pandemic and the future of public health.
