We are living through the worst global pandemic since the Spanish Flu in 1918. Covid-19 is a truly global challenge as it respects no borders and affects every country on the planet. As of Feb 2021, more than 28 million Americans have contracted coronavirus, with over 500,000 deaths. Life as we knew it has changed utterly, with school, work, sports and family life all affected considerably.
Global Health is dominating news headlines around the globe and more of us are beginning to consider the many interdependent factors required to achieve successful health outcomes.
This theme will focus on two areas:
- The coronavirus pandemic and how research into the virus has developed across the world
- Heath challenges in resource-constrained countries
The students will participate in workshops that will focus on how we investigate a new entity such as SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus OR addressing the social and cultural barriers to health services.
