Date: 17 May 2018
Location: Washington, D.C. USA
Organiser: CSIS Global Heath Policy Center
Please join us for a symposium hosted by the CSIS Global Heath Policy Center, in collaboration with DAI Global Health, Mérieux Foundation USA, and the USAID-funded Preparedness & Response project. The symposium will examine how U.S. and international policies aim to reduce the risk of a 21st century equivalent of the Influenza pandemic of 1918, while also addressing how these policies translate into practice in high-risk countries through collaboration between human and animal health professionals and institutions.
The symposium will take place on the eve of the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History’s new exhibition, “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World.” The event is part of the newly launched CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security.
