COVID-19 and Human Rights: Vulnerabilities & Inequality

Recorded: September 29, 2021

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, social and economic inequalities have contributed to its complexity. This event brings together an international group of experts to discuss what governments and policymakers can do to address the vulnerabilities of the most marginalized groups. The speakers addressed how the world can better prepare for the next pandemic. Acknowledging that pandemic fatigue has started to kick in, the group also discussed the window of opportunity to implement fundamental reforms toward reducing inequalities.
