LECTURE: Rethinking the Public Health Response to the Indirect Effects of War

 

Speaker: Paul Wise, Stanford

Location: JHSPH Sheldon Hall W1214 | RSVP here | Watch via Webcast


There is a fundamental need to understand and confront the epidemiology of the indirect effects of war, those effects due not to direct battlefield injuries but rather the destruction of the necessities of life, including water, food, shelter, and health services.  Despite the substantial technical capability to mitigate these indirect effects, public health strategies have increasingly been hampered by dynamic political and security obstacles.  Of special concern is the growing risk to health personnel and facilities operating in conflict settings.  Together, these concerns demand a reconsideration of public health strategies to assess, prevent and mitigate the indirect effects of war.
