COVID-19 and reframing the discourse on global health equity
Challenges, trade-offs and opportunities
At the end of February 2022, Sherine El Taraboulsi-McCarthy, Director of NatCen International, moderated an in-depth discussion, opening up perspectives on COVID-19 and reframing the discourse on global health equity.
This webinar was co-hosted by the Global Health Centre, of the Graduate Institute of Geneva. Discussants included Tammam Aloudat of the Global Health Centre, Priya Khambhaita, Co-Director of NatCen’s Health and Social Care team, and social scientist, Luisa Enria.
The discussion focused on COVID-19, the lessons learnt for global health equity and a reflection on the evidence available. Three core questions were asked to help frame this conversation – what has changed in the discourse on global health equity since the COVID-19 pandemic, what have we learned about the opportunities, trade-offs and challenges for ensuring equitable access to healthcare, and what does the future for health equity look like in a post-COVID world.
