UoB BMVP Lawrence Gostin Public Lecture: Global Health Security In An Era of Explosive Pandemic

25 April 2018, 5.15 PM - 25 April 2018, 7.00 PM

Professor Lawrence Gostin

8-10 Berkley Square, Moot Court Room

In this lecture, UoB Benjamin Meaker Visiting Professor Professor Lawrence Gostin makes the case for fundamental reform of the international system to safeguard global health security. He builds on the action agenda offered by four international commissions formed in the wake of the Ebola epidemic, calling for the recommended “peace dividend” (an annual incremental investment of $4.5 billion – 65 cents per person) to strengthen global preparedness, for the United Nations to play a greater role in responding to major global health and humanitarian emergencies, and for an effective and efficient R&D strategy with multiple stakeholders—governments, academics, industry, and civil society—identifying R&D priorities and leading a coordinated response.

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception and the opportunity to purchase Professor Gostin's book Global Health Law
