This Friday, April 3, the UFBA Institute of Collective Health promotes a new session of “ISC em Casa”, a virtual debate project focused on the Covid-19 pandemic.

The activity will count with the participation of the ISC director, Isabela Cardoso, professor Jairnilson Paim and José Noronha, member of the Advisory Council of the Brazilian Center for Health Studies (Cebes). The debate will be broadcast live, at 10 am, through the ISC’s YouTube channel ( ).

Started last week, with a session aimed at ISC graduate students, the project now takes on the seminar format. The idea is to create an expanded information channel for the entire community.

“ISC em Casa has the objective of making possible the dialogue on the challenges that we have faced in combating this pandemic”, explains director Isabela Cardoso. She highlights the importance of mobilizing researchers and institutions in relation to economic, political, social and health system organization issues in the search for answers to the damage produced by Covid-19.

“In this sense, we are scheduling several virtual seminars for this period in which physical distance is important and social cohesion is essential”, he concludes.
