The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations is needed to organize vaccine research on infectious diseases worldwide as the Biopharma industry has dedicated resources to Covid-19 research only because it was a catastrophic threat & they were paid billions up front for the work. Once Covid-19 vaccines have contained the threat they will return to the much more profitable cancer research & development.
However, infectious diseases won’t disappear. Many existing diseases still lack effective vaccines as they don’t effect the entire globe. And there will constantly be new, emerging diseases that it would be better to control from the onset before they become a pandemic & cost billions of dollars to control.
