Inequalities in the time of COVID-19

Public E-team



Share your research and your policy know-how on inequalities and COVID-19. Some of the key aspects to consider are:

(a) how pre-existing inequalities play into COVID-19; 

(b) equity and distributional aspects of COVID-19 responses;

(c) lessons learned from previous epidemics and outbreaks in relation to their social determinant and, critically, inequalities.


The outcomes of this team's work would be used in a brief to inform policy and project responses to COVID-19.  


You are welcomed to react to any of these discussion threads (see discussion section of the e-team) and/or initiate any new threads on the topic.
