Global Health Newsletter – April 2020

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the April Global Health Initiative newsletter! Apologies for not having a newsletter up for the month of March – the world has seen a lot of chaos and change this March, and it had honestly slipped my mind. Apologies for the lack of variety in news stories and opportunities; there is not much else reported besides Coronavirus nowadays.
