Event Details:

India is emerging from the world's largest lockdown in its fight against COVID-19. What challenges lie ahead for the country's 1.3 billion residents? How effective has the response from India's government been and what are the short and longer-term impacts of COVID-19 for India's citizens and its economy?

Join us on Thursday, June 25, 2020, for a King Center on Global Development special virtual event with Stanford Seed. You will hear from experts as they analyze the Indian government’s initial response to COVID-19, as well as how the virus is impacting public programs, businesses and workers, and the health care sector. 

Yamini Aiyar, president and chief executive of the Centre for Policy Research, Naushad Forbes, co-chairman of Forbes Marshall, and Stephen Luby, professor of medicine (infectious diseases), will share their expertise in a conversation moderated by Saumitra Jha, associate professor of political economy.

The event will be recorded and available to watch on the King Center website a week after the event.
