Join Venezuelan journalist Ricardo Barbar for a presentation of highlights from his investigative reporting for Prodavinci that exposed the myth of free public health care in Venezuela—a country once recognized for its quality public health system, high standards of epidemiological surveillance, and global health achievements, including being the first country to eliminate malaria. But a series of restrictive public policies and government decisions deteriorated Venezuela's health services, leaving the country unable to provide basic care to its population.
Barbar's presentation will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Daniela C. Rodríguez, DrPH, MPH, of the Department of International Health's Health System Program.
This event is co-sponsored by the Health Systems Program of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Department of International Health, the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health, the Latinx Public Health Network, the Pulitzer Center, and Global Health NOW. Pizza will be provided. Please RSVP to attend by emailing [email protected].
