IQ 13: What COVID-19 is telling us about our health systems with Alanna Shaikh

The current crisis is stretching our European public healthcare systems. Our economic and social lives are on hold to #flattenthecurve and keep deaths to a minimum.

However, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is not the first, nor the last challenge to our healthcare systems, as experts expect additional phases to the current epidemic and additional epidemics in the future.

What lessons does this crisis hold for our future healthcare systems? And how is this crisis changing us individually?


On April 24th, Alanna Shaikh, a health systems expert specialised in individual, organisational and systemic resilience, will be the guest of our upcoming Idealist Quarterly event. Her TEDx speech about the recent pandemic has been viewed over 15 million times.

Alanna will join the Idealist Quarterly’s very first online edition on 24 April 2020 at 11:45.
