Civilians suffer much morbidity and mortality during war. War destroys health-supporting civilian infrastructure and forcibly displaces populations. War violates human rights in many ways, from physical and sexual violence against women to attacks on healthcare. War contaminates the environment. And war leads to more violence. The four speakers in this webinar will review the impacts of war on health and human rights and how universities can address these adverse outcomes.
