How the coronavirus pandemic exacerbates existing inequalities
17 April 2020
Dr Ganguli Mitra talks with Katrien Devolder about how pandemics increase existing inequalities in societies, and how this may result in even more victims than those from the disease itself. She urges governments and others to take social justice considerations much more into account when preparing for, and tackling, pandemics.
Dr Agomoni Ganguli-Mitra is Lecturer and Chancellor's Fellow in Bioethics and Global Health Ethics,
Deputy Director of Mason Institute for Medicine, Life Science and the Law at University of Edinburgh School of Law.
