New infectious diseases are emerging faster today than ever before, just as many known diseases are reemerging. In an increasingly globalized world, tomorrow’s epidemics could infect millions and have vast health and economic consequences.

This webcast will cover what we currently know about emerging global infectious diseases, reflecting on events from the 1918 Spanish flu to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. We will also discuss what tools are available to help the insurance industry better plan for and respond to tomorrow’s inevitable epidemics.
