Today, more people are in need of humanitarian assistance than ever before. An increasing number of disease outbreaks, natural disasters and conflict is placing additional strain on already overwhelmed health services globally. Against this backdrop, collaboration between academic and operational partners has never been more vital.
Join us as we mark the partnership between the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute and UK-Med. The partnership brings together a leading global centre for the study of humanitarianism with a frontline humanitarian health organisation - both established in Manchester.
The event will include an introduction to a joint project between UK-Med, HCRI and Save the Children - a report on the Humanitarian Sector and the Climate Emergency. Guest will also have the chance to hear from the field on UK-Med's live COVID responses. Students and clinicians will also learn how they can get involved with UK-MED now and in the future.
The event is free to join and will be held on Zoom - or we would be grateful if you would consider a donation to UK-Med.
