Event description
Health Professionals for Global Health bring you the next in a series of Global Health Seminars

About this Event

Protracted conflicts in the Middle East have displaced millions of civilians and strained health systems across the region. Both conflict affected and host health systems have struggled to respond to the population movements and are increasingly underfunded, uncoordinated and politicized leaving them unable to respond effectively to the needs of their own populations or displaced people. In this seminar, academics and humanitarian practitioners will share their experiences working in the region in such contexts.

Chair: Dr Natasha Howard, LSHTM
