Global Disability: What can we learn from Zika?

Professor Hannah Kuper will deliver this lecture entitled Global Disability: What we can learn from Zika?

Zika hit the headlines in 2015 as thousands of children were born in Brazil with microcephaly and other abnormalities. This lecture will explore the impacts for the affected children and their families, and what it teaches us about disability more broadly.

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.


Free and open to all.
