Covid-19 demonstrates the fragility of all societies where large sections of the world’s population, even within the richest states, lack access to good healthcare. Achieving healthcare for all is one of the greatest challenge’s facing us today. In trying to escape the present pandemic, we see that any path ahead cannot rely on medical research alone, but requires other forms of innovation.

Approaching this challenge as one that crosses multiple fields of knowledge, in Autumn 2020 the Precision Health and Everyday Democracy (PHED) project held its first Commission on the Future of Healthcare Post Covid-19. With a series of oral and written submissions from a mix of healthcare practitioners, researchers, and activists, we collected information primarily on the situation in Sweden, with comparison to France, and the United Kingdom. The PHED project will soon publish our first Commission report, based on that information.

Now in Spring 2021, the Commission is focused on the international level, with a series of submissions invited from practitioners and researchers focused on the wider question of how to achieve good healthcare for all in an unequal world.

To present an oral or written submission, or simply to find out more on the Commission’s work, please email PHED@mau.se.

The PHED project is a collaboration between Malmö and Lund Universities, and is financed by an external grant from the Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education. During Spring 2021, it is also supported by an internal competitive grant from Malmö University, for internationalisation.
