UWA Albany Skywest Public Lecture : Success and failure when managing poor health in the developing world Other events...
Have you travelled to a developing country and been confronted with the obvious challenges faced by local communities trying to best manage the health & welfare of their people, and realised how fortunate you are living in a western society?

Since the 1970s, motivated by his family connection with India, medical knowledge in skin care and recognition of the significant divide between health care programmes in western societies compared to developing country situations, Professor Terence Ryan has played a lead role in delivering a number of extremely successful United Nations, World Health Organisation and British Government sponsored humanitarian programmes that have and continue to make an enormous difference to the lives of many people living in poor communities around the world.

Prof. Ryan will present a fascinating insight into the many humanitarian projects he has actively worked on in South America, China, India and Africa. All projects have had a simple mission of focussing on making a difference in treating neglected diseases by the deployment of low technology programmes. Perhaps there are lessons to be learnt that could assist in improving health care in remote regional communities here in Australia.

Prof. Ryan is an Emeritus Professor of Dermatology at Oxford Brooks University, University of Oxford, Honorary Doctor of Medicine Martin Luther University, Knight of St John, Rotary Club Paul Harris Fellow for International Activities, and Honorary Member of National Dermatology Societies in Britain, Nepal, India, China, Brazil & Tanzania.
