About this webinar
Recent pandemics including COVID-19 and Ebola have demonstrated the need for resilient health systems and global health preparedness. However, globally only one third of countries have the capacity to respond to a health emergency in line with International Health Regulations with low and middle income countries or countries affected by conflict disproportionately affected by poor preparedness. In this webinar, we will explore factors which affect global health security such as the impacts of climate change on pandemics and the potential interplay of pandemics with existing issues of public health concern such as antimicrobial resistance.
