Global Health Inequities & Infectious Diseases Workshop

April 12, 2019 -
10:00am to 6:00pm

Abstract: The workshop will bring together a multidisciplinary group of scholars at the University of Pittsburgh and beyond to examine global health inequities in the distribution of infectious diseases. Highly infectious diseases reflect global inequities worldwide, making up five of the top ten leading causes of death in low-income countries while constituting only one of the top ten causes of death in high-income countries. The workshop will include keynote lectures, panel sessions, and one plenary session. The sessions will consist of panelists invited to present a work-in progress that reflects the workshop theme. The workshop will conclude with a plenary session to discuss the potential for future collaboration and next steps.
