Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World

Why do infectious diseases emerge where they do? What makes them spread so quickly? Where do we look for the next one?

Our world is connected more than ever before by global travel and trade, by technology and by our microbes. Join us for a discussion that examines the connections between human, animal and environmental health, and discover how specialists in India and around the world track and respond to disease outbreaks.

The exhibition is part of an ongoing project at the Harvard Global Health Institute that aims to raise awareness about the factors contributing to infectious disease epidemics.

Tackling Fluorosis: Innovative technology as a solution to the spreading health crisis

Join us for our ongoing India Seminar Series to discuss the growing challenge of Water Fluorosis, in a discussion titled, ‘Tackling Fluorosis: Innovative technology as a solution to the spreading health crisis’

There are about 66 million people in India suffering from toxic levels of fluoride in their drinking water, these are mostly poor people in rural communities in dry / arid area that must depend of groundwater as their drinking water source. Fluoride is a vicious toxic ion in the sense that it affects and attacks the poor far more aggressively that it affects those nutritionally better off. It also is very effective in ruining the lives of very young people who then suffer from serious bone deformation (skeletal fluorosis) and its harmful economic, social, and psychological effects.
