The READY Initiative, Health in Humanitarian Crisis Center at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Geneva Centre for Education and Research in Humanitarian Action (CERHA), and the Center for Humanitarian Health at Johns Hopkins University are hosting a weekly webinar series on COVID-19 and humanitarian settings. The series will take place on Wednesdays from 8–9am (U.S. Eastern Daylight Time). Recordings of the series will be posted and follow-up discussions will take place in READY’s discussion forum.

The first session, “Shielding high-risk populations against COVID-19,” was held on April 1, 2020, and quickly reached its 500-participant limit.
