The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted attention and resources away from essential and emergency public health services, including immunization programs addressing other infectious diseases like polio, measles and tuberculosis. This suggests that the COVID-19 pandemic will have a broad and long-lasting public health impact across a spectrum of diseases, particularly in regards to vulnerable populations and humanitarian hotspots.
During this free online event, French and American NGOs and health experts will discuss the challenges faced by governments and organizations in today’s difficult economic context as they seek to respond to COVID-19 while also addressing other public health issues.
This event is co-organized by the Consulate General of France in Atlanta, Emory University’s Center for Humanitarian Emergencies, Emory University’s Office for Global Strategy and Initiatives, and the Georgia Tech Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems.
