He also is an Associate Professor at the University of Tromsø. He has clinical experience from working as a general practitioner, municipal, and county doctor. Previously he was the head of the Norwegian Board of Health Supervision and a division director in the Norwegian Directorate of Health. Frode also served as a senior expert at the ECDC and the Royal Tropical Institute in the Netherlands A few key takeaways: Frode on building strong health systems “You need to build health systems that can cope with any disease.” Frode on infectious diseases “Ever year, there are 1.2 million people dying of TB. Every year there are 800,000 people dying from AIDs. Every year 600,000 are dying of malaria. We very much know how to diagnose, prevent, and treat and we haven’t been able to get across the world to really do so. Now the whole world has jumped around corona and that has been extremely needed and useful, but I also wish we could have jumps like that for developing vaccines with the three diseases just mentioned.” We apologize for any small buzzes in the podcast as this was recorded remotely to be mindful of COVID19 social distancing guidelines across Europe.
