Whether refugees living in overcrowded camps or jobless migrant workers forced to return home, the lives of millions of people in Asia-Pacific are threatened by the dangerous combination of displacement and the COVID-19 pandemic. Congested settlements, inadequate access to healthcare, lack of information, stigma and discrimination are just some of the issues that need to be urgently addressed to help ensure those already displaced by conflict, or newly displaced because of COVID-19, receive adequate prevention, care and treatment. In this webinar, panelists will identify emerging lessons generated from experiences in combating COVID-19 in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh and amongst internally displaced communities in Afghanistan. It will also explore how COVID-19 is impacting migrants in Asia-Pacific, featuring India as a case study.
