On the 10th June 2021, the PCRC hosted a second online seminar on ‘Endangered Lives’, in collaboration with the Global Refugee Health Research Network (GRHRN, University of Edinburgh) and the Higher Population Council (HPC, Jordan). The seminar marked 2021 World Refugee Day and was entitled: Endangered Lives: Examining the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the health and well-being of refugee women in the Global South.
The event provided a unique opportunity to examine the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the lives of refugee women living in protracted crisis in Jordan, Bangladesh and Uganda. Presentations focused on the issues of adolescent reproductive health needs; gender-based violence; serious illness; poverty and hunger and highlighted the urgent need for collective global action, co-produced with refugees, to address these issues.
