On March 11, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. This triggered a set of regulations and made resources available to nations to combat the virus. WHO provides guidance to countries facing health crises. How effective is this arrangement? What is the relationship between countries and WHO? How does it promote cooperation on global issues like the COVID-19 pandemic? Doug Becker speaks with Heather Wipfli.

Heather Wipfli is an Associate Professor of Clinical Preventive Medicine and International Relations at the University of Southern California. Wipfli’s research focuses on international cooperation and governance approaches to improve health.
