This chapter discusses the shortcomings of the current global health regime and proposes a new framework based on Woodrow Wilson’s ideas about global interaction and responsibility. The authors explain how critical it is to establish a successful new system, given climate change, microbial evolution, and the current political landscape. The proposed system must resolve the tension between national sovereignty and national interdependence, while also improving response time and investing in long-term solutions. The authors conclude that these guidelines can be met by introducing engaged pluralism and ambidextrous leadership.
