Mpox: Learnings from Effective Science and Human Rights-Based Responses
January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health and UCLA Center for Global and Immigrant Health invite you to join us for “Mpox: Learnings from Effective Science and Human Rights-Based Responses” on Thursday, Jan. 19, noon–1 p.m. PST.
Mpox, declared a public health emergency in July 2022, requires not only strong political commitment grounded in sound evidence and science, but explicit attention to human rights and the voices of affected communities. This one-hour, virtual event will bring together an esteemed panel of researchers, scholars, scientists and practitioners for a discussion on lessons learned from HIV, COVID-19, Ebola and mpox in developing, implementing and monitoring responses to public health emergencies, with attention to understanding and approaching structural inequalities and their role in epidemics moving forward.
