Join GHI for the second webinar in the Global Health Equity Webinar Series. In this webinar – moderated by Ambassador John Lange, Senior Fellow for Global Health Diplomacy at the United Nations Foundation – WHO, resource allocation, politics and human rights. From the U.S. to WHO to the World Bank, institutions have responded to COVID across the world, leading to successes and failures to distribute resources and care equitably. What policies have guided the COVID response? How have they failed communities of color? How can unacknowledged biases be addressed? Is there a human right to health and/or health care? Who will ensure that health care is available to all?
