In this session, expert panelists all of whom have completed work in some capacity in the global arena will provide their insights in the continuum of ongoing HSS as well as acute emergency events, how they relate and the considerations that must be given to both in preparing a global community for the next set of disasters to unfold. While the session will contrast the vastly different considerations on both sides of the spectrum in this global health work, it will also provide insight into how this work is both inter-related and complementary. i. Presenter will discuss the immediate response to the 2010 Haitian earthquake as well as the later cholera epidemic as case examples of broader issues related to global health systems strengthening.
