Global Health Emergencies (GHEs) are crises that affect health, and that
are, or should be, of international concern. These might include
infectious outbreaks, humanitarian crises and disasters, conflicts, and
forced displacements. GHEs are characterised by various forms of urgency
and uncertainty, and are known to exacerbate existing inequalities,
injustices and vulnerabilities in individuals and communities. This podcast delves into what we mean by ‘Global Health Emergencies’, why they matter, and why we care about Justice in Global Health Emergencies.
