Opportunities to tackle structural racism and ethnicity-based discrimination in recovering and rebuilding from the COVID-19 pandemic

The impact of COVID-19 has been disproportionately felt by populations
experiencing structural racial- and ethnicity-based discrimination. Here, we
describe opportunities for COVID-19 response and recovery efforts to help build
more equal and resilient societies, through investments in: (i) interventions
focused on explicitly addressing racial and ethnicity-based discrimination; (ii)
interventions supporting the delivery of universal services, and in ways that
address compounding and intersecting drivers of exclusion and marginalization;
and (iii) cross-cutting enabling measures, such as participatory mechanisms and data disaggregation.
