We’re all affected by the coronavirus emergency. And it will take every one of us to slow down this epidemic. Join us for this live chat with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) about what our teams are doing around the world—and what each of us can do closer to home to flatten the curve. MSF teams are responding to coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, from Hong Kong to Italy. We’re opening new medical projects in some of the countries hardest hit, strengthening infection controls across our programs, and adapting to this unprecedented threat to health systems around the world. We also face huge challenges maintaining our other lifesaving medical work in more than 70 countries, responding where the needs are greatest.
Join Avril Benoît, MSF-USA executive director; Northan Hurtado, deputy medical director at MSF-USA; and Karin Huster, nurse and MSF project coordinator recently returned from managing our COVID-19 response in Hong Kong. We’ll discuss how to tackle the immediate dangers of coronavirus, and how we can prepare for the wider impacts of this pandemic.
Speakers will answer audience questions about the COVID-19 emergency and related MSF activities.
