Are we ready for the next epidemic?
Professor Peter Piot will deliver this lecture entitled 'Are we ready for the next epidemic'?
As we approach the 100th anniversary of the Spanish Flu, this lecture will explore some of the major epidemics over the last century, ranging from influenza to Ebola, HIV/AIDS, SARs and Zika. Reviewing past response efforts and new initiatives, this lecture takes a critical look at how the world can be better prepared for the next “big one”.
The Global Health Lecture Series is held every Monday during the first two terms, with the exception of Reading Weeks. Leading experts from the School present up-to-date summaries and debates about a range of global health issues. Each lecture is 45-60 minutes, followed by Q&A, and they are open to all students as well as anyone interested in learning more about global health.
Please note the lectures are very popular, so you are advised to arrive early.
Session recordings are made available in the Panopto block on the top right of the Global Health Series Moodle page.
