Webinar on Space4Health

On 14 May, UNOOSA will be hosting two sessions of a webinar on space applications to support global health, including to fight coronavirus. The two sessions will take place at 10-12.00am and 4-6.00pm Vienna, Austria time (UTC+2).

During the 90-minute sessions, experts from UNOOSA, as well as from other international organisations, governments and private sector companies operating in the space sector will discuss how space applications can strengthen the capacity of all countries, in particular developing countries, for early warning, risk reduction and management of epidemics and other health risks. Particular attention will be paid to the current coronavirus pandemic.
