Conflict and Health: Exploring Health Challenges in Current Conflicts

June 10, 2024

Date: June – August 2024

Location: Online, via Zoom


Join the Irish Global Health Network for a compelling exploration of the intricate relationship between conflict and health in our 4-part webinar series. Delving into the heart of ongoing conflicts, we aim to shed light on the multifaceted repercussions on both physical and psychological wellbeing, examining crucial aspects such as access to healthcare, food security, maternal health, trauma and mental health, and more. 

This series is tailored for a diverse audience, including global health professionals, development practitioners, humanitarian workers, policymakers, volunteers, students, and anyone interested in the intersection of global health, development, and humanitarian efforts. 

The series follows on from two successful webinars in 2022 and 2023 that were held in response to the evolving conflicts in Ukraine and Sudan. These webinars featured prominent speakers from organisations working both in Ireland and on the ground on humanitarian response efforts including GOAL, MSF, Amnesty International, and IOM. Both of these webinars were well attended and reported by attendees to be useful and informative.  

Our webinars aim to provide comprehensive insights into the impact of conflict on health, offering specific examples from current conflicts worldwide. Through expert analysis and firsthand accounts, we seek to foster a deeper understanding of the challenges faced and potential avenues for intervention. 

In partnership with Comhlámh and Trócaire.

Webinar Topics: 

  1. Palestine
  2. Ukraine 
  3. Sudan 
  4. Democratic Republic of Congo


Each webinar will feature a distinguished panel of expert speakers, offering diverse perspectives and insights into the intricate dynamics of conflict and health. Participants can engage in interactive discussions, Q&A sessions, and gain valuable knowledge from those on the frontlines of global health and humanitarian efforts.
