Covid-19 has affected everyone on the planet and put unprecedented attention on the critical importance of public health, and the need for communities to prepare better and respond more effectively to future crises.
University of Nottingham alumnus and honorary professor, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, has played a prominent role during the past 18 months.
He has both guided the international response to the pandemic, and is calling for equitable access to health tools and services as a precursor to preparing the world to respond better to the next pandemic.
In a unique university lecture and discussion as part of our celebrations marking 50 years of Medicine and 30 years of Nursing, Dr Tedros will share experiences and advice with students, staff and alumni on how they and the university can take an active role in protecting the world from pandemics.
