COVID-19 has disproportionately affected certain groups over others, threatening potentially devastating and unintended consequences for already vulnerable health systems.

However, the pandemic also presents an opportunity for us to re-imagine health systems that work for all, not just for some.

Established in January 2021, the IWG Global Lecture Series is a series of conversations with global public health experts that have been hosted by the IWG. GLS sessions draw from a range of diverse perspectives on regional and global health systems issues.

In 2020-21, each IWG regional team hosted a global lecture session covering themes relevant to that particular region. During these sessions, we were joined by local experts, academics, community leaders, and practitioners to tackle issues spanning from local community responses to international structures of policy, process, and power. Each GLS session was followed by breakout groups and discussions that all attendees can be a part of.
