The American Academy of Arts and Sciences and Chatham House are pleased to invite you to a conversation on opportunities and risks at the intersection of health care, conflict, and peace in Ukraine, Gaza, and elsewhere. Panelists will discuss the challenging global context for delivering humanitarian health responses, as well as specific issues pertaining to the unique nature of providing aid in areas of conflict. 

The discussion will draw on Delivering Humanitarian Health Services in Violent Conflicts, the Spring 2023 issue of Daedalus, the journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The open access publication is a product of the Academy’s project on Rethinking the Humanitarian Health Response to Violent Conflict. The publication and project are led by Jaime Sepúlveda (University of California, San Francisco), Jennifer M. Welsh (McGill University), and Paul H. Wise (Stanford University).

The event will be opened by David Oxtoby, President of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and moderated by Patricia Lewis, Research Director for the International Security Program at Chatham House. Following the discussion, please join members of the American Academy and other guests for a reception.

Please note that you will be asked to create a Chatham House account before registering for the event. The registration process will only take a few minutes to complete, and we appreciate your patience.
