ClinicalKey – supporting medical care for the displaced population from Ukraine
Several million people have left Ukraine since Russia's military invasion began on 24 February 2022. “The consequences of war, trauma, and devastation must be tackled swiftly. The resultant mid-term and long-term needs must propel all sectors, including health, into rapid action.” (Reference: The Lancet https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(22)00477-9/fulltext).

Prof. Paul Spiegel, director of the Center for Humanitarian Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, will join us live and share the unique aspects of this disaster, the health challenges that lie ahead and his recent experience as an emergency coordinator for refugee health in Poland and other countries neighboring Ukraine.

This event will last 1 hour and 15 min.
