Welcome to #LearningSavesLives webinars. Our webinars are an important part of WHO Health Emergencies Programme’s commitment to lifelong learning all personnel and volunteers need to keep people safe from health emergencies.

Our webinars focus on important and current topics related to learning for epidemic, pandemic and health emergency preparedness and response. Each webinar invites renowned international experts and experienced national and local practitioners to build up individual and collective knowledge and knowhow on health emergency work. You can pose questions and comments and interact with the speakers.
