As Harvard University's leading hub in international development, the Center for International Development (CID) is home to over 100+ faculty experts in economics, public policy and governance, business and finance, education, technology, environment, global health, and more, bringing a vast depth and diversity of development expertise and experience to COVID response efforts throughout the world. We are bringing together practitioners and faculty experts working in development to begin productive conversations on how we can move 'Beyond COVID' and establish a better path forward. Each month, we will focus on key dimensions of COVID response and recovery, sharing podcast interviews and organizing a culminating panel discussion with CID expert faculty and international development practitioners. These discussions will all focus on lessons learned from COVID and how we can use those to create better more resilient systems for the future.
This month, November is focused on improving vaccine equity and delivery with a virtual panel event on Thursday, November 18 from 12-1:15 PM (ET) with Matt Andrews, Edward S. Mason Senior Lecturer in International Development at the Harvard Kennedy School; Thabani Maphosa, Gavi’s Managing Director Country Programmes; Rebecca Weintraub, MD, Assistant Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at the Harvard Medical School and Associate Physician in the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women's Hospital; moderated by Asim I Khwaja, Director of the Center for International Development and Professor at HKS.
Over the last year, CID also created an initiative for a global, multi-year, and cross-sectoral collaboration between academia and public, private, and non-profit leaders to better respond to COVID-19 and help rebuild a thriving world: [https://www.hks.harvard.edu/centers/cid/covid-19] or contact us for more information.
