Post-Conflict Reconstruction: Global Health Concerns and Issues
A Public Health Seminar delivered by Candace Chandra, Founder and President, Canary Strategies, LLC on Monday, May 10, 2010. Due to the severity, length, and frequency of conflict around the world, global health is increasingly involved in post-conflict reconstruction. Conflict is increasingly impacting not just the burden of disease and prevalence of serious injuries (including mental health), but also destroying health care systems and physical infrastructure - creating an emergency situation similar to disasters. This seminar will focus on emerging trends in post-conflict global health, as well as provide lessons learned from post-conflict reconstruction projects in which the presenter was directly involved.
