Seminar Series: Public Health in Times of War | Wednesdays 18 May-22 June
18 May 2022

War in Europe was widely perceived as a problem of the past. Consequently, European Schools Public Health have taught little about war and its consequences for population health. This has changed with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the accompanying war crimes against civilians.

This mini seminar series with lecturers from the European region will start to fill gaps in public health curricula which have become obvious since the start of Russia’s war. When relating to the situation in Ukraine and its neighbours, and when assessing health risks, lecturers will draw explicit parallels to relevant public health challenges in other world regions, but also relevant non-war settings. 

The seminar series is organised by Bielefeld School of Public Health in association with the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER). The Lectures will take place on Wednesdays 18:00-19:00 hrs CEST by Zoom. Students of all ASPHER member schools are invited to participate.
