Uncommon Sense: Bill Bowtell On Australia’s Response To COVID-19
“We've got to come together in a calm way to minimise the effect of what's coming.” Bill Bowtell, strategic health policy adviser and Adjunct Professor at the University of New South Wales, joins Amy for a deep-dive conversation on the Australian government's handling of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and how it compares to the various approaches other countries are taking. They also discuss the crucial role of state and local governments, as well as community groups and what we can do ourselves. Bill Bowtell was an architect of the Australian government’s successful response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
