The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law fall colloquium series continues Wednesday, Sept. 16 with a focus on Ebola.
The Ebola virus disease epidemic in West Africa ultimately spurred an unprecedented response, yet also revealed the incoherence and inequity of the global health system. During a roundtable conversation, panelists will discuss the current state of the epidemic; the weaknesses in the preparedness of national governments, international organizations, and civil society organizations to detect and respond to the epidemic; the critical factors that explained these failures; and the reforms that are needed to keep populations secure against future epidemic threats.
The O’Neill Institute Colloquium, offered annually, is an interdisciplinary course that draws from the work of scholars, policymakers and the general health community.
