In this third Science Diplomacy Seminar focusing on COVID-19, we will discuss the multiple challenges facing governments to not only respond effectively to COVID-19, but how health agencies are changing partnership structures and addressing other health burdens.

(Willy) Lescano, Associate Professor and Head of Emerge, the Emerging Diseases and Climate Change Research Unit at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano-Heredia in Lima, Peru, and former Director General for Peru’s Epidemiology and Disease Control and Prevention Center, will provide opening remarks on challenges facing Latin America and Africa, and how science diplomacy principles are useful for navigating the current challenges in global health security.
