Global Health Challenges and Solutions

MatchPoints Conference, 11–13 May 2023
Aarhus University, Denmark

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown how quickly a disease can spread across the globe with devastating consequences for people’s health and the world’s economies. And it’s unlikely to be a one-off. Whilst some infectious diseases are being eradicated, new and unknown diseases are emerging – and many diseases that can be treated in countries with advanced healthcare systems are spreading in parts of the world less able to handle them.
