Thank you for you comment. If the international community were to decide that pandemic risk should be reduced, then the main role for the Bank would be in supporting the investments in veterinary and human public health systems, to bring them up to WHO and OIE performance standards, and contributing to coordination at global, regional, and country levels. There is also a potential Bank role in promoting multisectoral, whole-of-society preparedness to respond. Neither of these groups of activities would be profitable to the Bank, but they would generate substantial benefits for all Bank members.
