The pandemic affects everyone, but does not affect us equally. The elderly and those with previous illnesses are more vulnerable to the disease, but so are the poor, who are most often unable to protect themselves from the disease and from its economic and social impacts. The Resocie research group created a repository of civil society initiatives to provide researchers and the broader public with information and analyses about how civil society organizations have mobilized against Covid-19 and the broader harm that the pandemic has imposed on Brazilian society.
Some interesting Initiatives
This interactive space compiles research from countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America on the impact the pandemic is having on those regions. The urgency of food security, the dangers of domestic violence, restricted freedoms, rising unemployment and the need for formal jobs become evident in the range of articles, research papers and multimedia presentations in this hub.
The Marielle Franco Dictionary of Favelas, which aims to stimulate and allow the collective collection and construction of existing knowledge about favelas, is a key reference on information related to the fight against the pandemic in favelas (mainly in Rio de Janeiro, but also from other places in the country).
