THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON MIGRANT AND REFUGEE HEALTH
Like other diseases before it, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how quickly
migrants and refugees can become especially vulnerable to public health threats.
The COVID-19 pandemic has nevertheless reminded us that migrants and refugees are a highly heterogenous population.
They are not all at equal risk of exposure to disease, nor do they all have the same
levels of access, or lack of access, to host community preventative, diagnostic and
treatment services. It has also brought home how deficient many government
policies are with respect to the health promotion and protection of migrants and
refugees and other minorities. The “onesize-fits all” approach so often taken by
policy makers continues to disadvantage migrants and refugees, as well as other
social and economic minorities whose health and welfare is now becoming, by
both default and design, a responsibility of NGOs and informal associations that
do not necessarily have the long-term backing of government.
