Historically marginalized and vulnerable identity groups must not be left outside of public health efforts or the pandemic will continue to spread. At the same time, economic programmes that address the economic consequences of COVID-19 need to address the hardships that migrants and fragile populations face during a crisis.
After a decade of global poverty levels dropping, this trend is expected to reverse this year. Therefore, leadership initiatives, multifaceted research, advocacy and practice is more relevant than ever. Club de Madrid, the largest forum of democratically elected Heads of State and Government and UNITE, a global network of around 120 parliamentarians to end infectious diseases as a global health threat, organise this Live Discussion to exchange views on how policymaking related to COVID-19's consequences can include a social inclusion dimension.

Speakers are former New Zealand Prime-Minister Helen Clark (Club de Madrid Member), former Bosnia and Herzegovina Prime-Minister Zlatko Lagumdzija (Club de Madrid Member), UNITE’s President Ricardo Baptista Leite MD (Member of Parliament, Portugal) and Rosette Mutambi (Member of Parliament, Uganda; Founder & President HEPS Uganda; UNITE Member). The virtual panel session will be moderated by Terri Ford (Chief of Global Advocacy and Policy at AIDS Healthcare Foundation).

The webinar will take place on Thursday, July 2nd at 10 am CET. Register by following this link.
