Date:  1 Jun - 1 Aug 2021

Venue: Thammasat University, Bangkok




Natural and constructed hazards, new and re-emerging pathogens, conflict and rising inequity are all contributing to an ever increasing burden of mass human suffering worldwide. These threats put exposed populations at a much higher risk of new diseases, new disabilities and early death, and drain much needed resources away from development in countries which
can least afford it. Other global factors such as climate change, aging societies, urbanization, globalization, antibiotic resistance, mass migration and the politics of isolationist nationalism complicate the context in which humanitarian and first responder agencies have to operate, More than ever, innovative public health approaches to populations in crisis are needed.
