Spotlight on Davos: Building healthy and equitable societies

The COVID-19 pandemic brought to light, and exacerbated, existing inequalities on a range of fronts.

Explore these insights to understand what it will take to achieve growth that’s sustainable and inclusive, and stay tuned for more on #WEF2022.
