Περίληψη


Η ταχέως διαδιδόμενη πανδημία Covid-19 προκάλεσε πρωτοφανείς επιπτώσεις στον παγκόσμιο πληθυσμό, επηρεάζοντας καθοριστικά ανθρώπινες ζωές, πολιτισμούς και οικονομίες. Αν και αρχικά είχε υποστηριχθεί η κοινωνική ουδετερότητά της, σύντομα επιβεβαιώθηκαν οι σαφείς διαφορές στη θνητότητα και τη νοσηρότητα, οι οποίες αντανακλούν τις ήδη υπάρχουσες ανισότητες υγείας. Οι οικονομικά άποροι, οι φυλετικές μειονότητες, οι πρόσφυγες, οι άστεγοι προσβάλλονται συχνότερα και σοβαρότερα, εντείνοντας το ήδη επιβαρυμένο υγειονομικό προφίλ τους. Επιπρόσθετα, η οικονομία έχει πληγεί ανεπανόρθωτα, αυξάνοντας κατακόρυφα τα ποσοστά ανεργίας και οδηγώντας πολλά νοικοκυριά στην ένδεια και στην εξαθλίωση. Τέλος, οι πολιτικές υγείας καλούνται να διαδραματίσουν καθοριστικό ρόλο τόσο στην αποφυγή της επιδείνωσης των ανισοτήτων, όσο και στη διαμόρφωση ενός ίσου, δίκαιου και αλληλέγγυου κόσμου.
