  • 1.  What Can the US Learn from Asia and Africa about Fighting COVID-19?

    Pl Check out Website: Reverse Innovation to Fight COVID-19

    Some countries in Asia and Africa with experience fighting multiple epidemics, such as SARS, MERS, Ebola, or Zika, have had per-capita death rates from COVID-19 that are less than 1% of those in US and Europe.

    To help US policymakers learn from those countries, we have created a website, Reverse Innovation to Fight COVID-19, with several ideas/practices that seem to have helped those countries contain COVID-19. It's not too late for the US to learn from other countries.

    Do take a look and if possible share the website (and, if you wish, the HBR article below) with your social network (FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) and students. We'd like to improve the website through crowdsourcing. Your feedback is also welcome.<o:p></o:p>

    The website builds on R. Ramamurti, "Using Reverse Innovation to Fight COVID-19," Harvard Business Review June 17, 2020.<o:p></o:p>
