Webinar: A Perpetual Crisis – Reflections on Renewed Public Health Failures at the U.S./Mexico Border

In March 2021, a record number of children arrived at the U.S./Mexico border, challenging capacity at U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities and placing newfound pressure on the Biden Administration to act promptly. However, this humanitarian crisis is not new, nor is it a direct result of a new U.S. government administration. For decades, the U.S. has failed to improve a system ill-equipped to handle the needs of vulnerable refugees and migrants. As children wait in overcrowded jail-like structures and COVID-19 remains a threat, concerns about who will continue to suffer at the border, and for how long, persist.

The Harvard Global Health Institute and FXB Center for Health and Human Rights invite you to join us on Thursday, May 13, for a follow-up conversation building off three previous events focused on the health crisis at the border. Given the historical patterns of inaction from the U.S. and Mexico governments, and the evolving humanitarian crisis at the border, expert panelists will critically evaluate the current situation and address what steps must be taken to establish a humane environment at the border.
