CCS Webinar: The Impact of Covid-19 on the South African Health System
Speaker: Vuyiseka Dubula
Topic: Covid-19 has had a severe impact on health systems from the perspective of access by those who are already marginalised but also those who live with chronic conditions and are more susceptible to the virus. Worsening socioeconomic conditions have exacerbated this. Going forward a foundation needs to be laid for equitable access to a vaccine when it becomes available.
Speaker Bio: Vuyiseka Dubula is an HIV/AIDS and gender activist. She served as General Secretary of the Treatment Action Campaign and held various leadership roles at Sonke Gender Justice.
