Book Description

This book attempted to analyze the issues raised by the chronicity of the Covid pandemic and its governance. The author analyses, the information resources mobilized to combat the pandemic in industrialized countries and pays particular attention to the operational mechanism. The analysis sought to clarify the modalities of operation of the crisis system managing, while at the same time looking at the decision-making mechanisms. The main lines of analysis retained are: the piloting and management of the crisis, the markets for ordering protective equipment and vaccine, the hospital organization and the prevention campaign, the cost and the methods of financing.

Finally, the author, whether it might therefore, not be appropriate to rethink the organization of the pandemic’s governance? The health crisis governing should not be opened up more and deal with societal challenges? This organization is too complex and suffer both from a certain heaviness and from a lack of resources, which is detrimental to it proper functioning. It should first and foremost be open to people in the field whose absence, weighs heavily on the organization of the response to the pandemic. It should also be open to other specialties, even if they seem far removed from public health and medicine, if they are useful to the Government in guiding its action.
