WWC Event: Strategies to Meet Urban Health Needs in Africa
More than half the world's population is now urban, and more than a quarter of the 100 fastest-growing cities are in Africa. Though urbanization is often associated with improved health, African cities are struggling to cope with the demands of growing populations.
Please join the Woodrow Wilson Center's Urban Sustainability Laboratory for a discussion on public health trends and interventions that have made an impact in African cities. The panel will feature representatives from USAID, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Africa Population and Health Research Center and Management Sciences for Health.
A reception and art exhibit will follow, featuring photographs from A Corridor of Contrasts reporting on urban health issues in West Africa.
WHEN: October 28th 3 - 5 PM
WHERE: Woodrow Wilson Center
1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington D.C.
