    “Malaysia and the Politics of Global Health during COVID-19


    While the initial phases of Malaysia’s responses are localised within our borders, future phases must consider the dynamics of the global health architecture outside our borders. That architecture is under strain with increasingly nationalist behaviour by governments, the United States pulling away from the World Health Organization, and the evolving responses of multilateral organizations, private companies and philanthropies. What is the current landscape of global health politics and economics? How does it affect Malaysia? What are the specific COVID-19 issues that require Malaysia’s collaboration with the rest of the world? How can Malaysia’s government protect its citizens and residents? Through a conversation with Dr Khor Swee Kheng, this webinar will explore Malaysia’s rights and duties in the global health architecture and suggest ways for Malaysia to enhance our health security, access and outcomes.
