In a post COVID-19, context we foresee an exponential growth of gaps in the access to rights and services. As such, the States must guarantee equal opportunities, by prioritizing in a crosscutting manner, with an intersectional and inclusive focus, those groups of citizens whom prior to, during and even more so after the pandemic, are and will remain excluded from our societies and face stigmatization: the so-called groups in situation of vulnerability.
The Department of Social Inclusion of the OAS Secretariat for Access to Rights and Equity invite civil society organizations to participate in this consultation. The results will enable us to have more complement information on the impact of this pandemic on groups in situation of vulnerability in the Americas, and gather their recommendations and inputs to provide a more specific technical support to Member States to develop inclusive programs and policies for the post COVID-19 period.
This survey will be open to the public until June 30th, 2020.
A similar survey will be submitted to the Member States.
We thank you for your valuable contribution!
