As the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic and takes stock of the soaring human, economic and psychological toll, global health experts have already begun planning for the next health emergency. What went right – and wrong – in handling the current crisis and how should those lessons shape future pandemic planning? Will we be better prepared to face the next pandemic? And will these kinds of health threats become more frequent?
In this episode of the Made by McGill alumni webcast, we sit down with two of McGill’s — and the world’s — leading global health practitioners:
Dr. Tim Evans, Director of the School of Population and Global Health and former Assistant Director General of the World Health Organization
Dr. Joanne Liu, former International President of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders, and newly appointed McGill professor focusing on pandemic and health emergencies.
Moderated by Derek Cassoff, Managing Director, Communications, University Advancement
