The current Covid-19 crisis is the biggest challenge the world has experienced since World War II. It shows the importance of global health as a crucial topic in internal relations at large.
Multilateralism is threatened and foreign policy repercussions are important as some States increasingly take unilateral measures to public health, economic and security-related problems they are facing. At the same time, global cooperation initiatives and new solutions for a more globally-aligned response are emerging.
foraus wants to contribute to these efforts by serving as a platform for innovative ideas and solutions around global health issues. This is why we launched our new program on global health.
How does it work?
While the program is still forming, we already set up a couple of topics where you can share your ideas and get interesting insights on global initiatives (foreign policy implications and opportunities related to Covid-19; how cooperation in global health and around health data exchange can help us address pandemics; useful datasets on Covid-19; and many more).
Additionally, you may introduce yourself in the "Let's get to know each other" topic.
If you have questions about the upcoming activites of the global health program or want to get involved you can contact our Global Health Program Co-Head Barna.
