Tackling covid-19: public health and socioeconomic strategies
It is for the first time in recent history that almost the entire world is faced with a shared threat - theCovid-19 pandemic. Despite specific contexts and capabilities of countries and communities, there are potential lessons to be learnt from their strategies and experiences in tackling this shared threat. Towards this end, the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) and the India Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung(KAS) have come together to organize a webinar series on "Covid-19 Global Best Practices - Lessons for / from India". The present policy brief is based on desk research and discussions during the second webinar in this series on "Tackling Covid-19 - Public health and socioeconomic strategies", held on July 2, 2021.
