Principles of humanitarian public health

Professor Francesco Checchi will deliver this lecture entitled 'Principles of humanitarian public health'.

This lecture will outline the health consequences of different crises and introduce key principles for humanitarian action to reduce excess morbidity and mortality and restore disrupted health systems. We will focus mainly on armed conflicts and displaced populations.

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.
