The Series aims to highlight gaps in understanding of the health impacts of humanitarian crises and the effectiveness of subsequent humanitarian actions, and to recommend appropriate responses for research and practice. The Series is guest edited by Francesco Checchi and Bayard Roberts.

The Series launch event will feature presentations from the Series’ authors on their papers, followed by a panel discussion led by Dr Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of The Lancet.

Full programme details will follow.

Copies of the Series will be available at the symposium.
