WHAT’S THE ISSUE?
2021 was once again a year dominated by the pandemic.
Despite progress with first, second and booster jabs, the Omicron variant has led to further uncertainty for us all. But as we move into 2022, is there more optimism for the NEXT 12 months? One of the people who is best placed to answer that question is Margaret Harris from the World Health Organization.
MEET THE EXPERT:
Dr Margaret Harris was born and raised in Australia and is now based in Geneva working at the World Health Organization.
Margaret studied medicine at the University of Sydney, law at the University of Hong Kong and later completed a Master’s degree in International Public Health at the University of Sydney.
She has spent most of her adult working life in Asia, Africa and Europe and has worked at the WHO for more than a decade. Dr Harris has mostly focused on infectious disease outbreaks such as polio, Ebola, Yellow Fever, Zika Virus, MERS and now COVID-19.
