Occurrence of Pandemics points poor or ineffective global public health practices as outbreaks turning into epidemics are indicative of local ineffective or poor public health practice. As several diseases donot have borders golbal investment in strengthening public health practices is a must. Life is precious. It cannot be measured through economic loss alone. Prevention of epidemics needs large investment from private/public sector for newer diagnostic tools and vaccines. Some profit throgh manufacture or use of those is immaterial.World bank itself should not engage. World Bank should support strengthening of public health system and not get involved in profit making buisness.
