September 22, 2020 - On Tuesday, September 22 former State Department Ambassador Jimmy Kolker joined us on a Zoom web meeting to discuss Covid-19 and the Challenge for Global Health Cooperation. Ambassador Kolker was on the front lines of the U.S. Government responses to AIDS, Ebola and Zika. He provided us with a ‘health diplomat’s’ insider view of why we did not learn the lessons necessary to prepare for the coronavirus pandemic. And he will describe how the Trump administration’s transactional and neglectful view of international cooperation has left the U.S. losing leverage around the world as the virus spreads and vaccines and treatment arrangements are developed. His many messages about the way the Trump administration mishandled the Covid-19 pandemic were shocking. To view the video click HERE.
