Case Study in COVID-19 Responses: Lessons Learned from Sweden

May 8 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Q&A with Dr. Anders Tegnell, State Epidemiologist of the Public Health Agency of Sweden, moderated by ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan. Webinar arranged in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden in the USA.

Sweden has had an unconventional response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While other countries moved to implement stay-at-home orders and even mandatory lockdowns halting much of their economies, Sweden’s initial public health response to the pandemic was to encourage personal responsibility and offer recommendations to its citizens rather than impose strict emergency measures. What have been the pros and cons of this approach? How is Sweden adapting its approach as the pandemic continues? And what important lessons has Sweden learned in its response to the pandemic that is useful for other countries currently coping with the fallout?
