“The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the global health landscape. It is significantly reshaping health systems and policies and the way in which organisations involved in international health cooperation are operating. Since 2015, the international community has been working towards implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which is designed to pre-empt, tackle and solve the challenges, inequalities and disparities that have been laid bare by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The effects of COVID-19 have set back progress in many countries, erasing hard-won gains. The MMS Symposium examined the key structural determinants that have contributed to the disproportionate effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on marginalised and other groups, beyond the proximate drivers of the current crisis. Further insights into this topic are presented in this bulletin.”
