Global Health Histories Seminar 124: Health in Emergencies

Sunday 7 April 2019, 6.00PM

Speaker(s): Professor Mohammed Al-Maadheed (Visiting Professor, UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences & President, Qatar Red Crescent), Dr Awad Mataria (Regional Adviser of Health Economics and Financing, WHO EMRO) and Monishankar Prasad (Independent Researcher, Oman, UAE and India)

In acute emergencies, one has to be fast to save lives. But time seems to have become slower with so many protracted crises lasting for years.

This seminar will pose the question, how should we rethink humanitarian interventions? Our panellists will consider why it is important to reshape the humanitarian system around affected populations, putting them back at the centre of the system; the interlinkages between humanitarian response and long-term development objectives; and whether Universal Health Coverage could be implemented in heath emergencies.‌‌
