This report, edited by the Harvard Medial School Center for Primary Care’s Sanjay Basu, Jessica L. Alpert, and Russell S. Phillips aims to put a spotlight on (1) the ways in which countries failed or succeeded in overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic, (2) how primary care innovated in response to the pandemic, (3) lessons learned that might inform approaches to confronting future catastrophes, and (4) the ways in which innovation has served as a tool for driving health equity.
