The global pandemic has had a huge impact on their lives and their studies. However, the students of Sciences Po’s public policy of global health masters are already looking ahead.
They were granted an opportunity to do so by Sir. Richard Horton, director of “The Lancet”, a famous medical journal, who was one of the lecturers of their “Global Health Governance” class along with Sciences Po professors Benoît Vallet and Daniel Benamouzig. He asked them to prepare a 500-word correspondence regarding the post-covid world, to be published in the journal.
After hours of intensive debates between a group of 13 students* from various nationalities and academic backgrounds, they came up with a “call for action” that you will find here. Drawing on lessons from the pandemic, both its environmental causes, its consequences on mental health and digitalization, they advocate for a global perspective of health policies in the future, integrating all environmental, mental and social aspects.
