Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanita (OMS), accountability, governance sanitaria. Pandemic Influenza Preparedness (PIP) Framework, developed by the World Health Organization, is the only existing framework to face a global pandemic crisis. It is aimed to define a line of intervention which overcomes characteristics of health systems and allows the Member States at accessing to vaccines and other benefits. Besides reviewing its evolution, this article attempts to explore whether - and how - PIP could support future political and economic challenges engendered by Covid- 19. In the absence of a new global agreement, PIP may represent the first outline of a framework for reacting to the present pandemic crisis. Moreover, a revised and more robust version of PIP may increase preparedness to future health crises.
