In response to the relentless global health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, wealthy countries are rapidly rolling out and even 'stockpiling' vast quantities of vaccine doses. Meanwhile, many poorer countries in the Global South continue to lag behind with their vaccine rollout programmes. This puts at risk millions of lives. Moreover, the social and economic impacts of the 'COVID-19' pandemic remain fuzzy at the local level, especially among the impoverished communities in rural and urban areas.
In an attempt to address this gap, the University of Fort Hare (Department of Sociology and Anthropology), in partnership with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung South Africa (FES-SA) warmly invites you to a webinar under the title 'COVID-19 and intersecting challenges of land, economy and gender inequality in South Africa.'
This web-seminar is part of the popular Fort Hare Friday Seminar Series.
