On June 17, IMDS (Institute for Mobility and Social Development) will host the webinar Effects of Covid-19: the post-pandemic in health, education and welfare. The event, with the support of ​Folha, will be broadcast from 2.00 to 4.00 pm (Brasilia time) on this link.

Arminio Fraga (economist, former president of the Central Bank and columnist for Folha), Wanda Engel (former Welfare Minister), Rudi Rocha (professor at FGV and director of Ieps, Institute of Health Policy Studies) participate in the debate, together with Maria Helena Guimarães (President of the National Education Council and former Executive Secretary of the MEC), to discuss the effects of the health crisis in these three sensitive areas for public policies.
