[Webinar] Mahirap Maging Mahirap (UGAT and IPC Webinar on COVID 19)

On April 21, 2020, I presented a talk on health disparities during the COVID-19 pandemic in a webinar entitled "Mahirap Maging Mahirap: How are the poor coping with COVID-19?"

In the webinar moderated by the urban anthroplogist Mary Racelis, Maria Carinnes Alejandria of University of Santo Tomas and Joshua San Pedro of the  Coalition for People's Right to Health presented the struggles faced by urban communities, while I offered some framework about looking at health disparities, which I also discussed in an Inquirer column entitled "COVID-19: Protecting the most vulnerable"

 The webinar was co-sponsored by Ugnayang Pang-AghamTao (UGAT), Ateneo de Manila University's Institute of Philippine Culture, the Department of Science and Technology, and the Philippine Center for Health and Research Development.
