To bring information to the community during the period of social isolation, the Institute of Collective Health of UFBA promoted, this Friday (3), the seminar “Challenges to face Covid-19 in Brazil”, with exclusive transmission over the internet.

Presented by the director of ISC, Isabela Cardoso, the debate was attended by professor Jairnilson Paim and José Noronha, member of the Advisory Council of the Brazilian Center for Health Studies (Cebes). They discussed economic, political, social and health system organization issues in search of answers to the damage caused by the pandemic.

The seminar also opened space for Internet users to ask questions of the guests throughout the broadcast. The interactions were mediated by Professor Marcelo Castellanos, coordinator of the Postgraduate Program in Public Health at ISC / UFBA.

The activity is part of “ISC em Casa”, a virtual debate project focused on the Covid-19 pandemic.
