Lecture: Plagues and the Paradox of Progress: Why the World is Getting Healthier in Worrisome Ways

When: Thu., Oct. 17, 7:30 p.m. 2019

Thomas Bollyky will explore ‘Why the news about the global decline of infectious diseases is not all good’. There is a paradox in global health: the extraordinary progress being made in overcoming the bacteria, viruses, and parasites that were pervasive in poor societies is causing new sources of instability and impoverishment that threaten to undo all the good that has occurred. Presented by Savannah Council on World Affairs.
