**This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, July 2.**

Join Hudson Institute for a conversation with government representatives from the United States and Japan on the lessons we can learn from the current pandemic and how to apply them to create new, coordinated approaches to foreign assistance. Hudson Fellow Blaise Misztal will moderate the event.

Through cooperation with like-minded allies such as Japan, the United States has created generous and effective foreign assistance and global health programs, like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. These investments in the developing world have helped millions and are now proving critical during the pandemic. The coronavirus, however, is calling attention to areas of immediate international concern.

From the need for appropriate pandemic detection and response capabilities to authoritarian actors exploiting global crises for their gain, COVID-19 has exposed new realities that the United States and its partners must adapt to going forward.

Our guests will discuss these developments, and how the United States can work with key allies to assist developing countries in need while maintaining the freedom and openness of critical regions, such as the Indo-Pacific.
