Learn from COVID -- Create a pandemic prevention team -- Get better at detecting outbreaks early -- Help people protect themselves right away -- Find new treatments fast -- Get ready to make vaccines -- Practice, practice, practice -- Close the health gap between rich and poor countries -- Make - and fund - a plan for preventing pandemics -- Afterword: How COVID changed the course of our digital future.

Coming in 2022 from the Sunday Times bestselling author of How to Avoid a Climate Disaster Before Bill Gates became an expert on climate science, he was known as one of the few who studied pandemics - how they start, how they spread, how they can be controlled. He warned us years ago in a now-famous TED Talk of their arrival in our future. The future, of course, is now, and now is when we have to plan against a next one. How to prevent the next pandemic is a clear and upbeat plan of what every country, every government leader, and every individual can do in order to help prevent another pandemic, grounded in Bill's firsthand experience with the Gates Foundation's commitment to fighting Covid-19.
