How to Prevent the Next Pandemic

What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Before Bill Gates became an expert on climate science, he was known as one of the few who studied pandemics – how they start, how they spread, how they can be controlled. He warned us years ago in a now-famous TED Talk of their arrival in our future. The future, of course, is now, and now is when we have to plan against a next one.

HOW TO PREVENT THE NEXT PANDEMIC is a clear and upbeat plan of what every country, every government leader, and every individual can do in order to help prevent another pandemic, grounded in Bill’s firsthand experience with the Gates Foundation’s commitment to fighting Covid-19.

Critics Review

  • In this concise and lucid book, global health activist Gates reflects on the current COVID-19 pandemic, considers future ones, and renders several sensible recommendations for prevention . . . Passionate but never preachy, Gates delivers an expert, well-reasoned, and robust appeal for the world to unite in averting upcoming pandemics.

    Booklist
  • Gates delivers a thoughtful exploration of how lessons learned from Covid-19 can inform future global public health policies. In accessible prose, he spells out steps for preventing future pandemics, among them creating a global task force dedicated to doing so . . . Gates is realistic about what he’s up against . . . but he does a good job of making [the task force’s] $1 billion price tag seem reasonable.
