Coffee with Latin America

Join us to discuss ‘Big data and innovative ways of data generation for research’ in the first webinar of 'Coffee with Latin America' series.

Panellists will share perspectives across different regions, help identify unique challenges and solutions for discussion.

The format is quite informal. Each panellist will speak for 10 minutes, and then there will be 5 minutes for questions and discussion with the audience.

This series aims to facilitating global collaboration and learning, provide an opportunity for outreach and connection with the global health community.
