Healthcare within a humanitarian crisis: experiences from Gaza
Guests can attend in person or online.
We are delighted to be joined by Mr Khaled Dawas who will be talking about his recent experiences of working in Gaza as a surgeon providing emergency care. He will share his reflections on the targeting of health facilities and health workers during the conflict, the implications for medical education in Palestine and the role of global health students and practitioners world-wide.
This session will have the main lecture delivered by Mr Dawas and will also feature perspectives of other health workers who have experiences of working in Gaza, including Dr Jane Crawley (paediatrics) and Dr Shameq Syed (GP).
Mr Khaled Dawas is a consultant surgeon and associate professor at University College London Hospitals. He chairs the board of the medical education charity, Al Quds Foundation for Medical Schools in Palestine. He has been to Gaza twice with emergency medical teams since December 2023.
This session will have a presentation followed by Q & A.
