February 9: Roles of International Organizations in a Global Pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic has thrust the World Health Organization (WHO) into the limelight, for better and for worse. While some of the Trump administration’s criticism of the organization is unfair, the response to the early stages of the pandemic left many experts wanting more from the WHO. What is the WHO’s role in responding to international pandemics? What can be done to improve the WHO’s response to future global health crises?
Tuesdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Tuesday, January 26, running through Tuesday, March 16. All sessions will take place via Zoom.
Fee: $170, includes all sessions and readings.
