Posted on 30 August 2017

Prof. Sanjoy Bhattacharya, Director of CGHH, has been featured in an online news article on polio eradication

Prof. Sanjoy Bhattacharya  (Professor of the History of Medicine and Director of the Centre for Global Health Histories) has been featured in an article written by journalist Catherine Cheney for Devex, the global development media platform titled ‘What lessons does polio eradication offer for global health’.

In the article Prof. Bhattacharya’s efforts to ensure that the documentation of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, or GPEI, is multilingual, are highlighted, as is his recent funding application to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which focuses on the necessity to build an international coalition that will advocate across multiple languages for future vaccination-based disease elimination and eradication programs.
