Dear IFMSA family,
The world is facing an unprecedented crisis. At its core is a global public health emergency on a scale not seen for a century, requiring a global response with far-reaching consequences for our economic, social and political lives.. We have an obligation to ensure everyone is protected and included in the response to this crisis. Modern healthcare has given rise to extremely complex and multifaceted ethical dilemmas. The priority is to save lives. Outbreaks of disease often have gendered impacts. Since the coronavirus outbreak, news reports from a number of countries have documented bias, racism, xenophobia, and discrimination against people of Asian descent.
Why are human rights key in shaping the pandemic response and recovery? Whom is COVID-19 harming, how and why? Why are global solidarity, equality and nondiscrimination important to the COVID-19 response? Why think about the long term in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis?
IFMSA-Pakistan AIMC LC in collaboration with Medical Students Association of India present to you – SCORPodcast, a series of live audio episodes discussing the various aspects of human rights concerns posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Human rights enthusiasts from all over IFMSA-Pakistan, MSAI-India and IFMSA International are on board as speakers for all episodes of the podcast.
