As we continue to confront the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, an "all-society response" could begin to address concerns about testing, containing the spread, providing countermeasures, and maintaining the supply chain. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Forum on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) for Global Health and Safety convened a virtual workshop on June 25-26, 2020 to review best practices from past PPP epidemic and pandemic responses to determine if those frameworks have applications to the COVID-19 pandemic. The workshop explored PPP innovations that are addressing COVID-19 in other countries; examined PPP pandemic responses that expand the distribution of global public goods; and discussed PPP pandemic responses that enable the development of a global health security agenda. This publication highlights the presentation and discussion of the workshop.
