Thank you for this fascinating blog. Has the World Bank done any research on the reason why the needed public health investment has not already happened? Investing $3.4 billion in order to earn $37 billion. It seems like a no-brainer to me!!! But I am not a banker. :) seriously, what is the reason?

If we do not invest in this public health and One health, then the bottom 6 billion - the world's poor -- will suffer many premature deaths and illness.The rich will always survive so they could for that reason be less concerned about preventing a pandemic.

The World Bank could invest this money itself, and make an enormous profit?
