Webinar: Health Inequity, Discrimination, Xenophobia and Allyship during COVID-19

The growing risk of the COVID-19 virus is associated with a rise in discrimination and stigma. Several groups are experiencing disparities in regards to access to privileges which include affordable healthcare, safe and adequate housing, technology, food security and the ability to effectively social distance.
