About the Session
How Public Health Can Inform Humanitarian Negotiation in Times of a Pandemic
This Online Briefing Session is articulated around a professional seminar on a set of essential elements of the public health approaches to respond to the pandemic, applied to the specific contexts and state of the health system in the region. The elements presented in the introductory part of the session will be the object of deliberations in breakout rooms with humanitarian practitioners discussing a specific challenge or dilemmas in the case under review.
Select participants in the event can volunteer to contribute to the design of the CCHN Regional Think Tank on Humanitarian Negotiation in Asia planned for 2021. This design group will convene the following day after each event and will continue to meet regularly in the run up to the Think Tank in February 2021.
Participation in the Online Briefing Session
We invite governments, national and international agencies as well as NGOs to apply. Applicants are encouraged to participate in all three briefing sessions, yet it is also possible to participate in selected events only.
