Restoring Global Solidarity on the Road to Pandemic Recovery

January 26, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Dr. Agnes Binagwaho and Dr. Paul Farmer

Global health crises require global responses. But in the effort to control COVID-19, rising tides of nationalism have threatened collective action and deepened health inequities for many countries. In the face of these challenges to global health solidarity, the Duke Global Health Institute presents a probing discussion with two of the world's preeminent global health experts -Dr. Agnes Binagwaho and Dr. Paul Farmer - on how the world failed to cooperate to fight the pandemic and how to chart a new vision to achieve health equity.

This interactive webinar will span two continents, with our featured speakers appearing at the University of Global Health Equity in Butaro, Rwanda. Dr. Gavin Yamey, professor of the practice of global health and public policy, will moderate the conversation from Duke, fielding questions from the online audience. Attendees will join using Zoom webinar, space permitting.
