The Epidemiology and Economics of Coronavirus [E-Conference]

01.04.2020

The COVID-19 global health pandemic is rapidly changing the ways we live and work. In the age of sustainable development and at a time when the world is working towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this disease is complicating SDG implementation efforts as well as posing a real risk to achieving targets on communicable disease, education, life expectancy, and decent work.

This virtual conference attempted to examine the implications of COVID-19 for public health and the SDGs, as well as make recommendations on science-based responses. It was organised and offered by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), on 30 March 2020, and was attended by several international experts such as the ISGlobal researcher Carlos Chaccour.
