The COVID-19 pandemic, the growing impact of climate change, and the rapidly growing economic inequalities between and within nations have led to calls for re-thinking the future of human societies in ways that will result in a fairer, healthier, and more sustainable world.

This collection of articles analyses the ‘mega trends’ that will shape the rest of this century and the complex interplay between them, including how they are reshaping our global health landscape. 

This collection of articles was supported by the Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2022. Funding for the articles, including open access fees, was provided by the Prince Mahidol Award Conference (PMAC) and The Rockefeller Foundation. The BMJ commissioned, peer reviewed, edited, and made the decision to publish these articles. Viroj Tangcharoensathien and an expert panel that included PMAC co-chairs and members advised on commissioning for the collection. Rachael Hinton and Kamran Abbasi were the lead editors for The BMJ.


This session aims to:

1. Explore the 'megatrends that are reshaping our global health landscape

2. Understand how these are affecting the Covid-19 pandemic response

3. Explore how we can build back better given our current situation
