The first half of 2013’s Global Health Histories seminars have now taken place. These six seminars (which include the opening seminar on antimicrobial resistance - the first to be held at the WHO Regional Office for Europe) have been well-received, attracting strong crowds at the venues as well as online participants who have tuned in via the internet.
2013’s seminars have built on the series’ reputation as a popular forum for bringing together researchers and policy-makers in order to stimulate discussion on some of the urgent health issues of today, and to show that understanding the history of health, especially during the last 60 years, can help the global public health community respond to present challenges.
The recordings of all six seminars so far this year are now online through the Centre for Global Health Histories' YouTube channel. Visit this page if you have missed any seminars, or simply want to listen to the discussions again (the PowerPoint presentation are also available alongside the audio).
We are eagerly anticipating the coming Autumn seminars on Medical Tourism, Global Health Communication, and International Trade and Public Health. All seminars are held in the WHO library from 12:30 – 14:00 and are broadcast via webinar. To register for a webinar, please contact: GHHistories@who.int. Keep checking the CGHH Events Page and our social media websites for further details on these seminars, including abstracts and flyers which will be posted online as soon as they are available.
The next Global Health Histories seminar takes place on Wednesday 2 October on the subject of medical tourism.
