Equipping leaders to respond to the crisis
Leadership has never been more necessary or more difficult. We have always existed to support governments and will work with those around the world who have asked for our help. Our Government Advisory Practice is directly supporting leaders in their on-the-ground fight against Covid-19, and our Policy Futures unit is delivering analysis and advice to help countries mitigate economic impact, source essential equipment, harness the power of technology and position themselves for the rebuilding to come.
Supporting governments on the ground.
We have staff in more than 20 countries, including 10 in Africa, and are helping leaders build strong crisis response systems. We are also providing bespoke support on disease suppression measures, testing, equipment procurement, tech solutions and economic response.
Tony Blair served as Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from 1997 to 2007 and serves as Executive Chairman of the Institute. He set up the Institute to support leaders and governments, and he draws on his deep crisis management experience from his time in government and work with African countries during the Ebola crisis to drive the Institute’s response to Covid-19. He has mobilised the Institute’s 200 employees working in more than 20 countries to promote global coordination and help governments confront this unprecedented crisis.
