Although the COVID-19 pandemic has been having a horrific impact on everyone, the world’s most marginalised communities have been hit particularly hard. Despite this worrying global situation, we reaffirm our commitment to safeguarding the rights of minority and indigenous communities and implementing indivisible human rights for all. Since the onset of this pandemic, we have been paying close attention to the inequalities in access to protective equipment and healthcare services. Here is a summary of what we have produced along with our partners.
