Towards Universal Access to Medical Oxygen
Convened by the Mobile Medical Materials working group with a panel of oxygen specialists facilitated by Stephanie Sodero (HCRI, University of Manchester)
With scenes of oxygen shortages from Peru to India, the COVID-19 pandemic prompted many to consider the mobilities of oxygen. Where is oxygen produced? How does it get from the point of production to the patient? What challenges and inequities are entailed? As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, the Mobile Medical Materials working group is convening a panel of oxygen specialists to shed light on the inner workings of medical oxygen supply chains and how universal oxygen access can be achieved. The panel event will be edited into a podcast as part of 'Follow the Thing' series.
This panel discussion will explore disruptions to medical oxygen supply chains, including the impact of severe weather events such as road washouts due to flooding.
