COVID-19 Global Response

COVID-19 Global Response


Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed structural inequalities leading to health disparities and disproportionate burden of disease in underserved and socially vulnerable populations in all countries around the world. The Duke-Margolis faculty and research team are leading work to achieving test and tracing capacity, ensuring effective management and provision of health services, developing financing mechanisms for global access to a vaccine, mobilizing COVID-19 resources, and enabling continuous learning to adapt to the local context.

Read our blog published in Brookings Global Health hereThe SDGs actually provide the agenda for a sustainable global response to COVID-19—sustainable in that the response to this emergency should not lead to a neglect of the critical elements for equitable, affordable health care for all. In this blog post, we outline four opportunities for global health policy to renew the world’s commitment to the SDGs.
