The Low and Middle Income Countries Research Network (LMIC) launches its first policy brief on insights that can be used to inform pandemic interventions in humanitarian and fragile contexts.
The policy brief Learning from Grassroots Responses to the Pandemic – the Case of Chocó (Colombia) draws on the lessons from the research partnership between the University of Glasgow and the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund
This action research project, funded through the University’s COVID-19 Global Challenges Rapid Response Fund, aims to understand and mitigate the effect of the COVID-19 global pandemic in Chocó, the poorest and most ethnically diverse region of Colombia. The University partnered with the Diocese of Quibdó and the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF), to enhance capacity of the Diocese, to develop a collective response to the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that recognises, respects and learns from the common and differentiated challenges faced by various ethnic communities.
This event will discuss lessons learnt highlighting insights that can be used to inform pandemic interventions in other humanitarian and fragile contexts.
