A timely conversation with Sebnem Kalemli-Ozcan and Kamalini Ramdas covering healthcare inequity across low-income countries and its consequences for all.
The global pandemic has put a strain on healthcare services across the world but its complications have been far worse in poorer countries. This webinar will expand on the necessity for a suitable vaccination programme in developing and emerging countries to avoid a moral and economic disaster for both the rich and poor and explore innovative solutions to healthcare challenges - such as availability and accessibility. Moderated by Elias Papaioannou, co-Academic Director of the Wheeler Institute and Economics Professor at London Business School.
