Jameel Institute events
Over the last year, the Jameel Institute have been organising virtual events focused on COVID-19. Please see below for all upcoming and past events for you to watch again.
‘Where are we now? The Global COVID-19 vaccination programme’
The development of COVID-19 vaccines has presented the global community with many questions: how do we guarantee world-wide vaccine supply, what challenges do constrain health systems face with vaccine distribution, how are concerns over vaccine safety impacting uptake and what role has communication played in the vaccine rollout?
Watch our panellists discuss the learnings, challenges and opportunities faced over the last few months.
Professor Azra Ghani - Chair in Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London (Moderator)
Professor Anthony Harnden - Deputy Chair of the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), UK
Professor Heidi Larson - Founder of the Vaccine Confidence Project
Professor Julio Croda - Former Chief, Department of Communicable Diseases at the Secretary of Health Surveillance, Brazil between 2019-2020 and Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in the School of Medicine at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil
'Shaping the post-COVID-19 world' symposium
During these unprecedented times, we continue to learn how to control the virus, support and mitigate its economic and social impacts, and review how we can effectively prepare for pandemics in the future. Our symposium explored difficult lessons with views from central bankers, Nobel laureates, epidemiologists, public health policymakers. This unique virtual event marked the first anniversary of the Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics which was founded in October 2019.
Watch our Symposium 'Shaping the post-COVID-19 world' - YouTube. Since the launch, the Institute has been largely focussed on analysing the impact of COVID-19 around the world. For all of our COVID-19 reports and planning tools, please see our COVID-19 resources page.
