Contagion of fear – Ebola and future global health security responses

Part of the Global Health Advocacy seminar series held by the Royal College of Physicians and the Alma Mata Global Health Network, this seminar will address the current Ebola crisis in West Africa. It will analyse the international community’s response to the outbreak, and ask which factors have contributed to the delayed response by the WHO/UN and triggered individual state responses? How can health professionals in the UK contribute to the global response? And how will this outbreak affect future global health security responses?
Chaired by:
  • Dr Titilola Banjoko, Africa Recruit
  • Dr David Mabey, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
  • Dr Colin Brown, Alma Mata Global Health Network/King’s College London
  • Ms Ali Readhead, Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative/Sierra Leone MoH
  • Dr Michael Edelstein, Chatham House
The Seminar will be held at the Royal College of Physicians, 11 St Andrews Place, Regents Park, London. It will take place from 6:30-8pm with a drinks reception afterwards to allow networking and further discussion.
The seminar is free to attend. To reserve your place, email [email protected].
