RSTMH Major challenges for global health in a post-COVID-19 world

26 January 2021
Online/virtual conference

The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), in collaboration with RSTMH, is delighted to bring you this webinar hosted by The Guardian’s Health Editor, Sarah Boseley.

Join LSTM Director, Professor David Lalloo as he talks to Sir Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust and Tom Kariuki, Director of Programmes at The African Academy of Sciences, about the challenges humanity might face when, not if, the next pandemic arrives.

As recent events have shown, pandemics do not respect geographical boundaries. A globally focused effort is needed to combat the next major health threats to humanity amid the complexities of climate change and globalisation.

During this webinar the speakers will discuss how a coordinated effort from the global health sector, policymakers, international agencies, and communities will help address new and emerging challenges we face in a post-COVID-19 world.
