Health and Humanitarian Assistance in Afghanistan: The Canadian Perspective
Come to the University college lounge on March 12th at 2:30pm to hear Peter McKernan discuss his time working with CIDA in Kandahar province.
This presentation explores the work of the Kandahar Provincial Reconstruction Team (KPRT) in the area of health development and humanitarian assistance during the military “surge” year of 2010-2011, which is also the year Canada transferred responsibility for the KPRT to the United States. Special emphasis will be given to the role of health and humanitarian assistance within the context of the military’s “stabilization” and counter-insurgency efforts in Kandahar, and to the ways in which this work functioned along three key co-operative axes at the KPRT: civil-military, Afghan-international, and Canada-US.
Refreshments will be served
