9th Atlanta Summit on Global Health: The Race to Beat COVID-19 - DAY 3
Atlanta Summit on Global Health: The Race to Beat COVID-19
A Virtual Summit
June 1-3, 2021
Overview: The World Affairs Council of Atlanta –in collaboration with CARE USA, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and The Carter Center – hosts its 9th annual Atlanta Global Health Summit. The Summit convenes health experts from the public and private sectors, including senior CDC leadership, Washington policymakers and think tanks, and health experts from the US, the United Kingdom, Africa and India. The Summit’s focus is on the three critical, fast evolving dimensions of the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic: the pandemic’s acceleration of the preexisting hunger crisis complicated by the added challenge of economic recession; the unprecedented and highly problematic effort to launch remarkably promising vaccines worldwide in the race against proliferating variants and misinformation; and the intensifying international debates on critical reforms to better manage the current crisis and lay the groundwork for future preparedness, in a fragmented world beset by nationalism, geopolitical clashes, and acute scarcity.
This free event is co-sponsored by the Atlanta Global Studies Center.
