Dr Joanne Liu has been appointed as Cleveringa professor 2016-2017.

Dr Liu (1965), a Canadian paediatrician, has been chairman of the international aid organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) since 2013. It is thanks at least in part to her determined leadership that the worldwide Ebola outbreak in 2014 was  brought under control. In her Cleveringa lecture she will address the importance of humanitarian and medical assistance for refugees and other people in need.
