Resource Overview

This report is a call to action, for the immediate
health response required to suppress transmission
of the virus to end the pandemic, and to tackle
the many social and economic dimensions of this
crisis. It is, above all, a call to focus on people
– women, youth, low-wage workers, small and
medium enterprises, the informal sector and on
vulnerable groups who are already at risk.
