Neues von Denise "Umgestaltung der Gesellschaft" Feldner @dfeldner1.

Die #4IR Lobbyistin berät das Innenministerium, nennt sich "Corona-Architektin" obwohl sie eigentlich Juristin ist und meint, am besten zu wissen, in welche Richtung sich unsere Gesellschaft entwickeln sollte.
Frau Feldner besuchte kürzlich für unser aller Wohl auch das #WorldHealthSummit. Die Formulierung von #HealthSecurity als "soft underbelly of #democracy" ist zugegebenermaßen etwas eigenwillig: Als ob die Demokratie auf einem "weichen Unterbauch" überhaupt stabil stehen könnte.
Frau Feldner ist zudem glühender China-Fan und hält Europäer für eine Art ungehobelte Barbaren, die zu hygienischerem "Verhalten in der Gesellschaft" erzogen werden müssten. Sie spricht von einem dauerhaften "Leben in der Pandemie" und der Notwendigkeit von Überwachungs-Software:

The #G7 this weekend renounced its role as #globalhealth leader, @kentbuse and I argue in @bmj_latest:…

A thread on what next for global health & #healthsecurity.
Speaking at #G20 Rome #GlobalHealthSummit in May, German Chancellor #Merkel had raised the question, “if not us, who?” to end the global #Covid19 #pandemic.

At #G7UK this past weekend, #G7 responded with "Not us," committing to donate 870mn #vaccine doses when the need is 11bn.
Instead of engaging with recommendations of @TheIndPanel to strengthen #pandemic preparedness & the #globalhealth system (, strongly backed by @antonioguterres (), #G7 noted it would "explore" different proposals.

Today we released a new special feature in the journal #HealthSecurity as part of @WHO joint call for articles on infodemics with 5 leading peer-reviewed journals in all related to the components of infodemics during PH emergencies -
“infodemic” is used to denote a rapid, large-scale spread of health info & misinformation through a variety of media and informational channels. This overabundance of information—some accurate and some not—makes it difficult for people to differentiate between false & true info.
Articles on: practice & research-based analysis of misinfo, characteristics of successful online messaging, disinfo & epidemics in the context of biowarfare, understanding the impact of diff news sources on risk perception & use of community listening to respond to false info.

India is in the mid-level ranking for COVID-19 safety index, which includes four quadrants: quarantine efficiency, government management efficiency, monitoring & detection and emergency treatment readiness. Thailand & India are similar in the GHS index and COVID-19 safety index. Image
In this graph, only Thailand is there. India & Thailand are above average in GHS but poor in COVID-19 safety index.
Countries like Australia and South Korea rank well on both indices, top performers in #GHS
#UK #US are not in the top 40 performers in the Covid-19 safety index

Universal Health Coverage Passes Key Global Milestone:
WHO welcomes @IPUparliament's Resolution on #HealthForAll 👉
Universal Health Coverage is increasingly regarded as a cornerstone for sustainable global development as leaders and communities acknowledge that health is both a human right and essential to economic growth. #IPU141 #HealthForAll
“Universal health coverage is a political choice. Last month at #UNGA, the world’s leaders signalled their readiness to make that choice. Now it’s time to turn those commitments into health results”-@DrTedros #IPU141

I've had interesting and very stimulating discussions this week, that highlight the critical difference the government structure in a Federal Republic like #Nigeria creates for health security, compared to countries with unitary systems of government

Our role at @NCDCgov as included in the #NCDCAct requires us to 'support' states in outbreak preparedness and response. However, the dependence from states on the national agency is very high. Yet, we cannot ignore, because when we do, people die.
Health is on the "concurrent" list in #Nigeria, i.e responsibility of Federal & Sate govts. Unlike our security architecture which is centralised, our #healthsecurity is de-centralised. No clear line of control & we've to work hard to collaborate & cooperate across govt levels
