Accepting the 2006 TED Prize, Dr. Larry Brilliant talks about how smallpox was eradicated from the planet, and calls for a new global system that can identify and contain pandemics before they spread.
Larry Brilliant discusses the eradication of smallpox and protection from pandemic. His slogan of “Early Detection, Early Response ” is inspiring. You will also learn about GPHIN (Global Public Health Intelligence Network) located, not surprisingly, in Ottawa.
