GLOBE roundtable: The Impact of Covid-19 on Migration and Health. A Gender Perspective - Recording

February 23, 2021

The global COVID-19 pandemic affects us all - yet its impact is felt disproportionally more by some demographics than others. The crisis reminded the world of persistent inequalities, for instance regarding access to health care. It caused suffering in some of the most vulnerable communities, such as migrants and refugees. And in failing to acknowledge the gendered impact of the pandemic as well as of government responses, be it from national or global institutions, women are feeling the burden even more.

To explore gender and intersectionality perspectives related to the pandemic, GLOBE organised a virtual roundtable on 26 January 2020 with Centre for Gender and Global Health director Sarah Hawkes and Anna Triandafyllidou, who took a special look at the impact of COVID-19 on people of all genders, analysing questions of health and migration.
