Epidemics and Pandemics: Lessons from the Past, Coordinating for the Future
As the world learns from epidemics and pandemics past, how can we build robust surveillance systems to track the emergence of these diseases, especially among populations with less technological access, and ensure an equitable and cooperative global prevention and vaccination response? Physicians for Human Rights will host a discussion on the use of technology and data in tracking and monitoring global health crises, why collaboration in international response is critical, and how to ensure equity in vaccine distribution.
