Although COVID-19 doesn't discriminate, its impact does. Throughout the Asia-Pacific region, older people, persons living with disabilities, caretakers and the poor have a greater risk of getting infected and developing severe complications.
This webinar will focused on the early lessons and good practices that are emerging in the region on how to identify and protect the most vulnerable groups. Experts will also highlight what more can be done to ensure that no one is left behind in the regional efforts to prevent, respond and 'recover better' from the COVID-19 pandemic.
