Guest Lecturer: Public health challenges in Lebanon; a country struggling with refugee crisis, political unrest and total economic collapse (Dr Souha Kanj)

Event: Tuesday 12 January 2021 - online

RUNOMI is pleased to announce that Dr. Souha Kanj, who received the Radboud honorary doctorate in September 2020, accepted our invitation for a guest lecture on refugees’ health in Lebanon.

Dr. Souha Kanj’s vast medical expertise and outstanding accomplishments in identifying the socio-economic context of health issues promise an inspiring lecture and strong analysis of risk of infections among refugees and their limited access to public health in times of crisis in Lebanon – a country that was and still is confronted with a multitude of crises from the Middle-East conflict and hosting the largest number of refugees per capita in the world. She will cover as well the consequences of the Beirut port blast on the inhabitants of Lebanon in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the setting of a total economic collapse.
