  • UCL lunch hour lecture: The future of global health systems

    Global health systems focus on governance and coordination across institutions, health systems, and countries to improve health outcomes. However, these systems have been challenged over the past few years with the Covid-19 pandemic. With the economic and workforce strains of coping with the pandemic, global health agendas have been insufficiently financed, causing a weakening of collaboration. What does the future hold for global health in a period of nationalism and self-reliance? Will the post-pandemic period re-ignite multilateralism and a strengthening of global health systems to deliver on the sustainable development goal for universal healthcare coverage for all?

    Professor Nora Colton and Professor Jolene Skordis discuss some of the research that will be taking place over at our UCL East campus in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, opening in September 2022.

    The lecture is open to all registered participants. It will take place online on Tuesday 17 May 2022, 1-2pm.
