Eric Jia-Sobota has always been at the forefront to assist amidst pandemics. He started this while working with HHS and BARDA, specifically way before the invention of his company.
EverGlade made this easier for him with an amazing team behind him, necessary resources put in place and the influence he has to reach many people and different organizations that might lend a hand. To support the Government’s Pandemic response, EverGlade launched its website for this initiative.
The initiative was to help gain federal awards for relevant companies and researchers who would meet the pandemic response need and financial help to help them meet their goals. On the date of launching the website on the 22nd of September 2021, Eric stated that those organizations affected by the pandemic should submit their applications and seek advice and counsel from EverGlade.
He also discussed the White House initiative released on 3rd September and published in an article on the 13th. Its main objective focused on future pandemics and high consequence threats and the best way to react to them rapidly and effectively and was inspired and organized across five goals in mind:
Transforming Medical Defenses
This features a major goal: to develop a vaccine in less than 100 days after a pandemic outbreak and to vaccinate all U.S citizens within the next 130 days since the vaccine’s approval. This aims to cost about $41 Billion in the next 7 to 10 years.
Awareness generally means that the Government, with at least $5.4 Billion in the next 7 to 10 years, should develop real-time monitoring techniques to detect any viral outbreaks and react to them in the best way possible.
Strengthening Public Health Systems
Public Laboratories around the U.S should be funded and equipped with the best equipment needed to coordinate a global response to the next pandemic with at least $9.4 Billion in place.
Build Core Capabilities
With the same 7 to 10 years period, with at least $8.8 Billion in stock, the country should be equipped with the necessary supply and supply chains to combat future pandemics.
Manage the Mission
To manage the main mission of the initiative, the Government should set out $8 billion to institute the mission control function.
