Center for African Studies and Global Studies Center along with Year of Pitt Global, University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Center for Global Health, Center for International Legal Education, Ford Institute for Human Security, Center for Bioethics and Health Law and School of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh

The workshop will bring together a multidisciplinary group of scholars at the University of Pittsburgh and beyond to examine global health inequities in the distribution of infectious diseases. Highly infectious diseases reflect global inequities worldwide, making up five of the top ten leading causes of death in low-income countries while constituting only one of the top ten causes of death in high-income countries.
The workshop will be composed of keynotes, panel sessions and one plenary session. The sessions will consist of panelists invited to present a work-in progress that reflects the workshop theme. The workshop will conclude with a plenary session to discuss the potential for future collaboration and next steps.
