Senator Van Hollen on Next Steps in Gaza

March 13, 2024 • 8:30 – 9:30 am EDT

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.

From 8:30-9:00am, this episode will feature Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), who will discuss current and proposed U.S. policy options to address the ongoing health and humanitarian crises in Gaza. Senator Van Hollen will be joined by J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director, CSIS Global Health Policy Center, and Michelle Strucke, Director, CSIS Humanitarian Agenda and Human Rights Initiative. 

From 9:00-9:30am, this episode will feature Francesco Checchi, Professor of Epidemiology and International Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, who will discuss the findings of the recently released report, "Crisis in Gaza: Scenario-based Health Impact Projections." 

This event is made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
