UBC Global Lounge IDW Event: Reimagining Healthcare Systems
February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This is a Simon K.Y. Lee Global Lounge & Resource Centre Event.
With the current conditions of the pandemic, we have witnessed the shortcomings of the healthcare systems and knowledge bodies that inform it. Moving forward, we need to re-evaluate how we approach public health crises. The Global North has founded the predominant mechanisms that designed our health systems, but in order to move towards a more sustainable and equitable world, we must incorporate a reformed approach that amplifies more diverse voices. More specifically, we want to uplift non-Western strategies to tackle the pandemic that could help us recover sustainably and prepare for the next one, whenever it may be.
