This document, created by the Ministry of Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Welfare in Spain, provides analysis and proposals to tackle epidemiological vulnerability related to social inequities exacerbated during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is necessary to analyse the impact of social inequalities on epidemiological vulnerability and to address them, by developing recommendations targeted to both decision-makers and professionals involved in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 crisis is having an unprecedented impact worldwide. However, it is not affecting everyone in an equal way. Three different, but interconnected, kinds of vulnerability can be identified:
- clinical vulnerability,
- social vulnerability and
- epidemiological vulnerability.
The report explores these 3 types of vulnerability.
