Unseen Enemy explores why we are experiencing a whole range of diseases that were once only outbreaks, but have now become full-blown epidemics.

First released in 2017, the film shows in what ways society and individuals can work together to reduce the risk of epidemics demonstrated through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika. However, as we have seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, the world was still not prepared.

Screening this Saturday!

For 130 years prior to 2006, abortions and terminations of pregnancies were legal in Nicaragua for medical and health basis.

However, in 2006 a new anti-abortion law was introduced and did not allow a single exception for a legal abortion - not even in cases of rape, incest or when the mother's life is at risk. Following the trajectory of punitive laws passed a decade earlier in neighboring El Salvador, Nicaragua is one of only a few countries in the world to have such severe restrictions.

In 'A Quiet Inquisition', Dr Carla Cerrato (obstetrician-gynaecologist) struggles with her conscience as she contends with the harrowing implications of this law.

Originally arriving at the Calais Jungle as a volunteer, Thomas Laurance was moved to pick up a

camera and document what he saw over the year he spent there, until the refugee camp’s destruction in October 2016. This film is the result of the remarkable and intimate access he gained to both volunteers and refugees.

Last Saturday I attended the Dutch Global Health Film Festival in Rotterdam where we first watched the movie ‘Resistance Fighters’ about antimicrobial resistance.

I got the exciting opportunity to speak in the panel discussion after the next movie ‘2040’, which showed several practical solutions to environmental problems we are facing. We had an interesting discussion in which we spoke about why climate change is a global health problem and the EAT-Lancet planetary health diet.
