Dr. Judith Wasserheit, Chair of the Department of Global Health, and Dr. Charles Holmes, Georgetown University join the Infectious Diseases Society of America's (IDSA) COVID-19 podcast to discuss the critical role of the World Health Organization (WHO) in COVID-19 response efforts, and how its defunding could impact our ability to prevent, detect, and respond to future pandemics.

Dr. Wasserheit joins the show at the 5:50 mark. This episode was recorded before President Trump notified Congress that he had sent formal notification to the United Nations about withdrawing from WHO.
