Lessons from COVID-19: Evidence from Five Emerging Markets


The paper, “Lessons from COVID-19: Evidence from Five Emerging Markets”, compares the experiences of Brazil, India, Mexico, Russia, and South Africa in responding to and pivoting to transform from the COVID-19 pandemic. The experiences of these large countries offer lessons on health system resilience for the global community and opportunities for investment in a post-pandemic world.

This short overview is based on a more extensive Aceso Global analysis of the five countries and their experiences with COVID-19 (Lewis, Stuttgen, and Coyne 2022). Given the certainty of future pandemics, these lessons offer important insights for Emerging Markets as they grapple with prevention, preparation, and responses to inevitable future threats.
