Webinar Topic: Healthcare During COVID-19 – Finding Opportunities During a Crisis
About the webinar:
The field of global health across developed and developing countries often experience unequal power dynamics. With the COVID-19 pandemic, countries like India and Bangladesh have had to rely on individual and societal equity to develop innovative technologies and ideas to ensure overall public safety and create scalable solutions.
With the onset of COVID-19 and the resultant lockdown, many healthcare systems were challenged not only to tackle the virus, but to make sure other healthcare services were not affected.
Dr. Aparna Hegde and Dr. Senjuti Saha give us insights on how they managed to tackle the onset of COVID-19 across two diverse regions like India and Bangladesh and what the future of healthcare holds.
