The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the weaknesses in public health policies around the world, even in developed countries. However, developing nations can be affected even more devastatingly by the crisis. The lack of structure and resources for responses makes collapses in health systems a reality.
With the objective of exploring the theme, presenting solutions to public managers, and informing the general public, the Brazil Africa Institute will hold, on May 7th, the webinar “International Cooperation Amid the Pandemic: Joint Solutions for Public Health”.
The meeting will be broadcast live and in English on the Brazil Africa Institute’s YouTube channel. The dialogue will be attended by Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO); Olive Shisana, Social Policy Special Advisor to the President of the Republic of South Africa; Roberto Cláudio, Mayor of Fortaleza (Brazil); Olive Shisana, Social Policy Special Advisor to the President of the Republic of South Africa; and Jorge Chediek, Director of the UN Office for South-South Cooperation. Professor João Bosco Monte, IBRAF’s President, will moderate the webinar.
The dialogue will be focused on the current context of the Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences, especially in the countries that make up the global South. Participants will be able to talk about the impacts that the coronavirus has left on health systems and how international cooperation can help nations overcome the crisis.
The webinar will be open to the public and will begin at 12 pm, Brasília time (GMT-3). The information and updates will be carried out on the social networks of the Instituto Brasil África, as well as of the organizations that will be participating.
