"Health is 16-18% dependent on medical care and 80% dependent on cultural and social determinants," recalls Dr. Penny Caldicott.
In the same way for the Covid-19 crisis, we focused on the virus but what does this crisis show us about our political, economic, scientific, educational, health, and economic systems? What are the possibilities of evolution?
Dr. Penny Caldicott invites us to break down our siloed systems of thought in favour of a holistic vision that emphasizes the interactions between the systems that govern human life and life in society.
