Inaugural Professorial Lecture of Prof. Cheryl Walter at the Nelson Mandela University

The UNESCO Chair Team congratulates on this success 'Full Professorship'!

The health and well-being of children living in low-income impoverished communities in South Africa is of great concern. They have become victims of the poverty and growing inequality, and the country’s purported status as the most unequal country in the world. Research has shown that there is a growing risk of children being affected by the dual burden of infectious diseases and the rapidly increasing non-communicable diseases, which has detrimental consequences to their growth, development and well-being. Following, you can find the summary and the full text of the lecture.
