Gun Violence in Mexico and Central America: The Challenges and the Paths to Solutions.

After the 2020 Annual meeting concludes, stay in DC and join us at the Georgetown University Law Center for a daylong discussion about the impact of arms sales throughout the Americas. The Global Burden of gun violence accounts for over 250,000 deaths worldwide, and half of these deaths occur in just six countries –all in the Americas. This public health and humanitarian crisis has significant challenges, requiring multiple paths towards policy and program solutions, needing many disciplines and sectors of civil society to be aligned towards making our respective nations healthy and safe. This multisectoral conference is intended to convene public health, humanitarian, arms control, policy, and other leaders to focus on the challenges and paths towards solutions. Co-sponsors include the O'Neill Institute at the Georgetown University Law Center, Consortium of Universities for Global Health, Giffords Law CEnter, Medical College of Wisconsin Office of Global Health, Anahuac University, Stop US Arms to Mexico, Latin America Working Group.
