UN in your language

malaria leuvenThe European Law Student's Association and the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies, in cooperation with UNRIC, kindly invite you to a roundtable on "Reforming the Global Trading System for Social Good: the Case for Anti-Malarial Products".

  • Mr. Anthony Carroll (Senior Associate Center for Strategic International Studies Africa Program, Vice-President Manchester Trade Ltd)
  • Mr. Eugene Rosengarden (Former U.S. Government Senior Executive, founder of Customs and International Trade Development Group)
  • Mr. Richard Tren (Co-founder and Chairman of Africa Fighting Malaria)

Chair: Prof. Dr. Jan Wouters (Director Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies)

Every year around 250 million people suffer from malaria and up to 1 million people, mostly children in Africa, die from the disease. Malaria control and treatment involves the trade of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of commodities, such as mosquito bednets and medicines – yet in some cases tariff and non-tariff barriers raise costs, cause delays and ultimately cost lives. Join us for a discussion about how to remove some of these trade barriers and sustain this life-saving global effort.

23 May 2012, 7 pm - 8:30 pm
College De Valk, Zeger Van Hee (DV1 91.56)
Tiensestraat 41, Leuven
