Coronavirus (282) Videoconference with David Nabarro on COVID-19 and older people

1 April, 2020

(forwarded from Action for Global Health, UK)

On Thursday 2 April at 3 pm UK time (GMT+1) WHO and 4SD are hosting a videoconference with Dr David Nabarro, one of 6 Special Envoys on the COVID19 pandemic to WHO Director-General, on COVID-19 and its impact on older people and those with underlying health conditions. Dr Nabarro will be speaking about the community-level interruption of transmission in relation to older people, and what we can do at the community level to tackle the pandemic. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear Dr Nabarro’s views as a leader in Global Health and to bring some focus on older people to the discussion and response to COVID-19.

Dr Nabarro’s time is incredibly stretched, as I’m sure you can appreciate, so the videoconference will be 30 minutes. This limits any time for interaction and questions. In recognition of this, WHO has set up a process through which you can share questions for Dr Nabarro in advance of the call. These will be collated and provided to Dr Nabarro, who will use these to structure his talk.

You can send questions using this link and entering the following event code: CSO-COVID19

Please do take the opportunity to submit questions. Questions will close at noon Geneva time on Wednesday 1 April.

Information on how to join the videoconference is in the attached flier. The session will be recorded and made available for those unable to attend.

I hope you can join this important call.

Best wishes and stay well
