Annual Lecture

Professor Whitty shared his unique insight and vision to look ahead to the next decades of global health – identifying key areas that he sees as opportunities, and areas requiring more focus – in what was an inspiring and well-delivered lecture. 

He complemented the Usher Institute on the huge portfolio of work in the global health arena – as exemplified by the excellent speakers at the Global Health Symposium before the lecture.
