On the 27th of June 2019 The George Institute for Global Health held the Fight the Fear breakfast event at which the guests were invited to challenge their pre conceived notions about the possibilities of science and technology, changing the ways in which we think about and thereby solve social problems.
The right to health and the obligations of countries worldwide were the focus of the latest George Talks event at The George Institute for Global Health.
Professor Gorik Ooms, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, presented: ‘Health security and the right to health: friends and foes’ and began by explaining human rights as a concept; that one cannot have a right if there is no corresponding obligation.
He stated that a person’s right to health was based on a reasonable expectation that society will intervene.
