    Child Health and 2008 Economic Collapse

    Iceland as a case Date: October 9 2017, 13.15-14.30 PMVenue: Room 7.0.08, CSS, University of Copenhagen After rapid economic growth in the first few years of a new Millennium, more than nine tenths of the Icelandic banking system collapsed within two weeks in October 2008. The collapse was historic, both in scope and content, domestically as well as globally, and the ensuing economic crisis resulted in popular unrest and deep cuts in healthcare costs. In this session Dr. Geir Gunnlaugsson will describe, analyse, and discuss the impact of the economic collapse on the health and wellbeing of children and families using Iceland as a case. The presentation will be based on data in national databases on the health and wellbeing of children and families, enriched with interviews with selected professionals, and published work. In short, based on available data, the overall impact of the collapse on child health has been minimal and Dr. Geir Gunnlaugsson will look further into the facilitating factors for this outcome. Finally, potential lessons learned from global efforts to reach universal health coverage in the era of SDGs will be discussed. About the speaker:Dr. Geir Gunnlaugsson graduated from the University of Iceland (MD) with post-graduate training in paediatrics (PhD) and public health (MPH) at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. He is Professor of Global Health at the University of Iceland since 2015; in 2010-14 he was the Chief Medical Officer/Surgeon General for Iceland, and in 2000-2009 the Director for the Centre for Preventive Child Health Services in Reykjavík. » Read more
