Since the start of the Russian invasion on 24 February this year, more than 10 million people – roughly twenty-five percent of all Ukrainians – have fled their homes and/or country in the largest migration flows in a century. Join the CUNY SPH Center for Immigrant, Refugee, and Global Health for a special Dean’s Grand Rounds webinar that will discuss the impacts of this crisis within Ukraine as well as on its neighbors, on Europe and on the rest of the world. Special emphasis will be given to the challenges faced by countries hosting the largest numbers of Ukrainians, the importance of connecting immediate relief with longer-term solutions, and the role of women in responding to this crisis.
