Are You Ready for the Next Pandemic?
In this recording, originally presented presented on December 10, 2013, Nita Madhav, MSPH, CCM and Doug Fullam, ASA discuss AIR's Pandemic Flu model. Despite modern medical technology and suppression efforts, an influenza pandemic today could cause tens of billions of dollars in global life and health insurance losses. But with a limited historical record and high variability in the susceptibility of populations and the dynamics of how disease spreads, pandemic risk can be exceptionally difficult to assess.
