Professor Sirleaf will discuss how neglected infectious diseases force us to grapple with several questions:
- When do international actors become responsible for ensuring the right to health?
- When should international actors be responsible for any mistakes, omissions, or actions that result in massive health violations?
- What should such responsibility look like for international actors?
