Repositioning Women's Health Care: A Case Study on Women Who Survived Ebola...
Thu 1 June 2017, 12:30 – 14:00 BST
Oxford Women in Politics (OxWip) and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities | TORCH welcome you to this event on 'Repositioning Women's Health Care: A Case Study on Women Who Survived Ebola in Sierra Leone' with Fatou Wurie (Blavatnik School of Government). This talk will explore designing a responsive health care system that places women's health at the centre - women and girls to be viewed for their potential and not as problem sets to be figured. There have been 28,616 Ebola cases in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and 11,310 people have died. The talk will explore: socio-structural determinants; sustained lack of investment; and physical and psychosocial effects experienced at the individual, community, and international levels. The epidemic is cross-cutting in impact, but women are disproportionately affected.
This event is part of the TORCH Humanities & Identities Lunchtime Series.
