YCEMP and the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth World Humanitarian Summit Working Group are co-hosting a webinar on health and essential medicines. With guest speakers from MSF Access Campaign and the HGEI-Lancet Commission on Global Access to Pain Control and Palliative Care, the panel will explore the following questions with all participants :

  • What do “essential medicines” mean to humanitarian workers?
  • How can we safeguard the health of people in conflicts and natural disasters by securing the provision of quality and safe medicines?
  • Why did we not develop a vaccine or drug against Ebola sooner? (The virus was first discovered in 1976!)
  • Why are medicines unaffordable?
  • Why should young people care? What can we do?
