When COVID-19 is Just One of Many Crises: The Pandemic’s Impact on Displaced Persons

Monday, May 18, 2020, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

Even before the coronavirus pandemic hit, the world was in the midst of the largest refugee crisis since World War II, with an estimated 70.8 million forcibly displaced persons worldwide. Now, COVID-19 is sweeping through a population with minimal access to medical services and little ability to practice social distancing. How do we start to think about carving out space for displaced populations when in the midst of our own crisis? Please join experts in the field of disaster relief and humanitarian aid to learn about what is being done and what is still needed.
