Inclusive healthcare for indigenous communities during COVID-19 pandemic

Inclusive healthcare for indigenous communities during COVID-19 pandemic

Planetary Health Perspective seminars

 

In the context of COVID-19, structural inequalities with regard to access to healthcare have risen worldwide. During this event, we will focus on the situation of indigenous populations in Latin America during the COVID-19 response.

Esteban Ortiz Prado will share his experiences of how he reached indigenous populations in the Ecuadorian Amazon and present challenges he faces to offer testing and medical services to indigenous communities. This webinar also aims to stimulate our reflections on how much we can learn from indigenous populations about collectively living more sustainably to prevent future virus outbreaks and to protect our planet.
