A Dire Humanitarian Crisis Continues—Gaza: The Human Toll

March 1, 2024 • 8:00 – 9:15 am EST

The CSIS live studio conversations, ‘Gaza: The Human Toll,’ are a product of the CSIS Bipartisan Alliance for Global Health Security, with co-sponsorship of the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda and the CSIS Middle East Program. The show will convene regularly during this crisis period to capture clearly and accurately the evolving humanitarian and health situation inside Gaza, understand how the conduct of the conflict is shaping outcomes and future policy and operational choices, think carefully about what may lie ahead, and hear from key operational international agencies and NGOs providing humanitarian assistance, as well as other experts with vital insights. Throughout these conversations, speakers will explore current and proposed U.S. policies.

In this episode, J. Stephen Morrison and Michelle Strucke will be joined by Lana Wreikat, Deputy Director, UNICEF Emergency Operations, Avril Benoît, Executive Director, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières USA, Richard (Rik) Peeperkorn, World Health Organization (WHO) Representative for Occupied Palestinian Territory, to discuss the dire health and humanitarian crises in Gaza.
