Post Covid-19 challenges
The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed shortcomings in many areas including health and long-term care and support. It has exposed gaps in the way we as individuals, families, communities and societies acknowledge and address risk and inequality, as well as discrimination.
However, in the post Covid-19 world, the opportunity is to strengthen our resilience and creativity, and to promote intergenerational solidarity to save and improve lives. Covid-19 presents us with an opportunity to build a new normal.
Many governments around the world along with WHO and other organisations are increasingly promoting healthy ageing, and this should be a key component of a strategy for the new normal.
Clearly, health (and other) inequalities, which have been present in our communities, have been brutally highlighted during the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic did not cause them, merely brought them into the open.
So let the overarching goal post Covid-19 be to ensure healthy ageing and to reduce health inequalities.
