COVID-19 and Global Inequality: highlights from the webinar

A webinar series ‘Global Pandemics in an Unequal World’ seeks to ask what is needed at local, national, and global level to combat inequalities and promote a more egalitarian and sustainable pandemic response. Nicoletta Dentico will be presenting in tomorrow’s online livestream “COVID-19 and Global Inequality”.

In a series of articles published last month, SID’s Health Programme Lead, Nicoletta Dentico has already warned on “the health divide existing between the North and the South of the world. It has produced different and diverging approaches, multiplying inefficiencies and opportunities for corruption (in line with the global empirical evidence), and ultimately increasing costs.”

On Tuesday 28 April, a webinar deepened the debate on how COVID-19’s unfolding is reinforcing inequality in a discussion moderated by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, professor and director of the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs.
