Public Health Vs The Economy The BMJ Podcast

    • Science

Around the world, as the covid pandemic plays out, and some countries are starting to ease their restrictions, this narrative of the economy and public health being opposing weights on a set of scales keeps returning - they need to be balanced.

But before this, a healthy population is very much seen as being supportive of the economy. So is a pandemic different, or is that dichotomy false.

Joining us to discuss are;

Martin Mckee, professor of european health at LSHTM
Kathleen Bachynski, assistant professor of public health at Muhlenberg College
Sridhar Venkatapuram, associate professor global Health & philosophy at King's College London
