Globally, we have learnt many lessons from the pandemic – that public health shouldn’t be politicised, that we cannot stop COVID-19 without a global response, and that the cracks of inequality between nations have become impossible to ignore. How can we use what we have learnt over the last two years to ensure we emerge a healthier and fairer society?   


Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard is now the Chair of the Wellcome Trust, a not-for-profit global organisation that supports science to solve urgent health challenges equitably. She joins journalist Tegan Taylor for an evening of conversation exploring how to leverage science and make advances in health available to everyone.


This event is co-presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas, Kirby Institute, and UNSW Medicine & Health.
