Global Health Justice

This conference explores themes in global health justice in the light both of the pandemic and growing awareness of the need to raise new voices and new perspectives in debates about how to understand and mitigate the gross disparity in health prospects we see around the world. Bringing together academics in global health, bioethics and political philosophy with policymakers, we aim to create space for a broad conversation around new directions in global health justice. The conference is co-hosted by the Blavatnik School of Government and the Independent Resource Group for Global Health Justice.
