Fast track to recovery: US-China collaboration on COVID-19 prevention and treatment
Content from the Brookings-Tsinghua Public Policy Center is now archived. Since October 1, 2020, Brookings has maintained a limited partnership with Tsinghua University School of Public Policy and Management that is intended to facilitate jointly organized dialogues, meetings, and/or events.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, spawning new variants around the world, few issues are more pressing than controlling its spread. There is an urgent need for the world’s two largest economies — which have come together on virtually every global health crisis of the 21st century — to join forces again to stop the pandemic. With addressing COVID-19 a top priority for leaders in both Washington and Beijing, it is a critical time for collaboration.
On Monday, March 1, the Brookings Institution and Tsinghua University provided a forum for leading public health and medical experts in both countries to explore the way forward with concrete policy recommendations for medical and research cooperation, vaccine development and distribution, and international protocols for global travel and trade.
