Understanding vulnerabilities in the context of COVID-19

3/12 Understanding vulnerabilities in the context of COVID-19

WHO webinar series

This WHO ‘Vulnerability series will look at COVID-19 as a syndemic, acknowledging the social origin of COVID-19.

  • 3 December: Cities, urban health and well-being and inequalities & COVID-19

  • 17 December: Vaccinations, inequalities & COVID-19

  • All webinars take place on Thursdays, at 16:30 CET here.

Worth to watch this presentation back from Micheal Marmot: COVID-19 is “EXPOSING and AMPLIFYING” – to use his words – existing inequities also in mental health. His presentation was truly impressive and made many wonder WHY – with such evidence – we are (still) where we are. Many have asked for the recording. It can be found here.

- What can regions do when data is not at level of the UK (i.e. lack of disaggregated data)? - What actions can regions take to reduce inequalities related to COVID-19? - Is there a trade-off between health and the economy? Sir Michael Gideon Marmot, FBA, FMedSci, FRCP is Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London. He is currently the Director of The UCL Institute of Health Equity.
