The Health Impacts of COVID-19 on Those Most Left Behind

COVID-19 brought to light the gross inequities faced by people who are marginalized and minority populations. But it's also offered us a chance to amplify the voices of these often overlooked populations.

Across the globe, government responses to COVID were varied and fragmented. As variants continue to emerge, it is clear that this pandemic is far from over. So how can we ensure a more equitable response to the pandemic, and other critical health needs, moving forward?

In recent months, Global Health Council has evaluated this issue from many angles. We conducted an extensive literature review and listened to those most affected about their lived experiences. In our latest report, we use this information to highlight the challenges, triumphs, and shortcomings of the COVID-19 pandemic response and outline recommendations for a more equitable path forward. 

Watch the recordings from our recent CSO Summit: Elevating Civil Society and Community Voices in Global Health which discussed the results and recommendations from the paper.
