COVID-19 impact on vulnerable groups
Policymakers and public health experts suggest COVID-19 has a disproportionate impact on vulnerable social groups, threatening to increase societal inequality and divisions. The intersectional nature of health, the social and economic vulnerabilities, and the complexity of risk in today’s socio-ecological systems emerge as the main reasons. The EU-funded COVINFORM project relies on intersectionality theory and complex systems analysis to analyse the COVID-19 responses at government, public health, community, and information and communications levels. The project will analyse quantitative secondary data and develop models on an EU-wide level, analyse documentary sources from 15 target countries, conduct primary empirical research in 10 target communities, and develop an online portal and visual toolkit for stakeholders.
