Covid book by Dr. Chalil & Amb. Kapur is an Amazon bestseller

By Ajay Ghosh

‘Beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic: Envisioning a Better World by Transforming the Future of Healthcare’, authored by Ambassador Pradeep Kapur, Public Policy specialist, and Dr. Joseph Chalil, an expert in healthcare policy, is now on Amazon’s bestsellers list.

Around the world, providing quality and affordable healthcare remains a challenge. As the COVID-19 pandemic began, it quickly became apparent that public policy and current healthcare systems were ill-prepared to deal with the challenges. Amb. Kapur and Dr. Chalil discuss the lessons learned and the way ahead in the new book.

The authors offer sustainable and revolutionary solutions to change healthcare delivery in the United States and a model for other countries. With a combination of a public SafetyNet and free-market competition, they offer their “Grand Plan.” The advances and adoption of current and new technology will revolutionize the field of healthcare. They offer critical strategies that countries can adopt during natural disasters, wars, or a pandemic.

The authors focus on breaking the chain of employer-based health insurance, where your health insurance is not tied to your employment. Too often, the benefits of providing healthcare for all is lost in discussions about health insurance. Yet, this book does not allow these issues to control the analysis of healthcare delivery.

The book offers practical solutions, addressing citizens’ needs now and into the future while empowering them to be more responsible for their health. As envisioned by the authors, the emerging global scenarios address healthcare needs, education, and sustainable lifestyle choices, reducing the need for more intensive and costly interventions to improve the overall quality of life. There is a roadmap for the United Nations and WHO, which are not living up to their initial promise, beyond just reform. The authors challenge the world to have the political consensus to create meaningful change for all, both in the United States, the UN, and around the globe.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that ensuring affordable and timely access to health care is a priority for all. It has shown us the limitations of each country in combating a healthcare crisis like the one we are experiencing today. As the pandemic began, it quickly became apparent that public policy and current healthcare systems were ill-prepared to deal with a pandemic’s challenges. Providing quality and affordable healthcare remains a challenge.

Esteemed personalities worldwide have acclaimed the book released in October this year. They included Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, spiritual guru and humanitarian.

The authors will be donating the profits from the sale of their book to AAPI Charitable Foundation and WHEELS!
