Great Influenza Centenary Project

Great Influenza Centenary Project

This year marks the one-hundredth anniversary of the historic influenza pandemic ​of 1918 that killed more than 50 million people around the world. This ​centenary provides Georgetown University, through its university-wide Global Health Initiative, an opportunity to engage a wide variety of disciplines​, spanning all our campuses, schools, and departments​,​ to reflect on the events of 1918 and to inform current ​challenges in responding to pandemic threats.​
