Star Lecture: Health Care in Humanitarian Emergencies
How do we provide healthcare for populations affected by humanitarian emergencies? What infrastructure is needed to strengthen local health capacity and assist foreign medical teams providing emergency aid? What other factors ? such as culture, politics, logistics, and anthropology ? influence the effectiveness of humanitarian response? Drawing on examples from post-conflict in northern Sri Lanka, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the West Africa Ebola outbreak and the recent Nepal earthquake, Dr Hughes explores the complexities, challenges and approaches to delivering health care during and in the aftermath of such events. This lecture provides an insight into the world of health care in humanitarian emergencies, highlighting the multiple factors affecting this.
