What is the situation of global health today, in the midst of the pandemic? What are the lessons to be learned, considering both the legacies of the past (e.g. colonialism, neoliberalism and the controversial history of „Primary Health Care“ 1978), the historical context of today (incl. revival of nationalism and authoritarianism, severe global inequalities), and pressing challenges for the future (e.g. climate change and global migration).
High level speaker from WHO, academia and civil society will engage in conversations with students and junior health professionals from Germany, UK, Mexico, Lebanon, Malawi, Ireland and the international audience.
The series will start on Thursday, November 19, 2020, with Dr Bernhard Schwartländer, Chef de Cabinet, WHO Geneva. Dr Schwartländer looks forward to engage in a conversation regarding “The WHO and the pandemic”, and you are all welcome to participate and engage. For forthcoming sessions, please consult the full programme.
