Conflict and Health in the Middle East
1st March 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm GMT
Protracted conflicts in the Middle East have displaced millions of civilians and strained health systems across the region. Both conflict affected and host health systems have struggled to respond to the population movements and are increasingly underfunded, uncoordinated and politicized leaving them unable to respond effectively to the needs of their own populations or displaced people. In this seminar, academics and humanitarian practitioners will share their experiences working in the region in such contexts. Register here for this free event.
