Great Influenza Centenary Project

The year 2018 marked the one-hundredth anniversary of the historic influenza pandemic ​of 1918 that killed more than 50 million people around the world. This ​centenary provided 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.​
