The current coronavirus issues exemplify this message.
Antibacterial resistance (another subject I have posted about previously) continues to be a major issue where such approaches are very important.
More recently, I hope you have also read the short articles I wrote (and posted here on this website and on LinkedIn) that refer to the value of international collaboration, interdisciplinary approaches and open communication. The articles focus on and link to two recent publications on population health intervention research (PHIR).
I think it is valuable (and also challenging) to be open to a more holistic approach whilst being rigorous and scientifically sound. Future projects may benefit from more partnerships and collaborations.
