Appendix A Workshop Statement of Task This virtual workshop will host retrospective and prospective discus- sions on the broad ongoing effects of the rapidly evolving pandemic on human health and society. Presentations will explore new understandings, challenges, and emerging data for leaders in governments, public health systems, the private sector, and communities to consider in the ongoing pan- demic response with a view toward improving resilience and preparedness for future outbreaks. Specifically, the workshop will feature invited pre- sentations, panel discussions, and breakout rooms on the following topics: Anticipated long-term effects of the pandemic on health, both direct (physiological) and indirect (societal), at the individual and population level The effects of COVID-19 on human health equity, taking into consid- eration the two-way relationship between health outcomes and structural or social determinants of health. Incorporating best practices and lessons learned from around the world to examine the role of social sciences in building a nuanced, trans­ disciplinary approach that strives to ensure equity in continued COVID-19 recovery efforts and mitigation of future emergent diseases Takeaways from the COVID-19 experience for leaders in government, communities, and the private sector on actionable and sustainable ways to collaborate, manage risk, build trust, and communicate effectively for public health, particularly in the context of uncertainty during public health emergencies The effect of disinformation and misinformation and how they can be managed to maintain public trust and optimize adherence to health behav- ioral guidance in a time of crisis 75 PREPUBLICATION COPY—Uncorrected Proofs

To take stock of lessons learned from COVID-19 around the world and in the United States, the Forum on Microbial Threats held two virtual workshops during 2021. The first workshop focused on what it means to frame the response to COVID-19 through a "syndemic" approach, and what the implications would be for global recovery. The second workshop focused more broadly on key lessons and emerging data from ongoing pandemic response efforts that can be incorporated into current health systems to improve resilience and preparedness for future outbreaks.

This workshop explored the long-term effects of COVID-19 on health equity, including considerations for mental health and social determinants of health. It also addressed uncertainties during a pandemic, such as trust, communication, and engagement and explored approaches to systematize recovery efforts to improve the ongoing responses and prepare for the next pandemic. Experts discussed possibilities for a post-pandemic world and a response strategy for stakeholders that ensures sustained community partnerships and prioritization of health equity. This Proceedings of a Workshop summarizes the presentations and discussions from the second workshop.
