In Fact with Chelsea Clinton

In Fact with Chelsea Clinton

What do vaccines, stigma, climate change and sex have in common? They all relate to our public health. Covid-19 isn’t the only public health crisis we’ve faced. It’s not even the only one we face right now. What led us to this moment, what have we learned, what did we get right (and wrong), and how can we do better? As we navigate a pandemic, and a moment that’s rife with conspiracy theories and misinformation, Chelsea is getting the facts. Each week on In Fact, Chelsea Clinton sits down with experts, activists and a few surprising guests who share Chelsea’s passion for science, evidence and yes, facts. Along the way, they’ll open the world of public health through shared stories, their work, connect the dots between the past and present moment, and help us understand that, now more than ever, public health affects us all.

Outbreaks are inevitable; pandemics are not. This week, Chelsea is sitting down with Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, Dr. Anthony Fauci, to discuss just how unprecedented this past year has been, what we’ve learned from past crises, what we can learn from COVID-19, and how to prepare -- personally, nationally and globally -- for what’s next.

When HIV was first identified in the early 1980s, it was a public health crisis mired in urgent scientific questions: How was it transmitted? What were the symptoms? Could it be treated? But alongside that, and equally challenging to public health, was the stigma attached to the virus. Homophobia, racism, and shame around sex combined with a woefully inadequate response from our government made the epidemic even more deadly. Today,...

The COVID-19 pandemic hasn't just upended our sense of "normal" -- it has laid bare so much about our health care, infrastructure, politics, and culture, and the deep inequities built into all of these.
