COVID-19 AND HUMANITY: HUMAN RIGHTS IN PERIL
“AIPP has been observing the situation in Asia and the trend indicates that stringent measures put in place by governments in the last few months has not been effectively used to put their house in order to deal with the impact of the cycle of the pandemic curve that is likely to continue for some more time. Severe food and clean water shortages continue, and access to healthcare and essential services have hardly improved. Even appropriate awareness information in local languages for communities is still a major challenge.
In this update – the third release of the “COVID-19 and Humanity” series – we provide some of the trends on the issue of human rights in Asia and it based on information compiled by AIPP i.e. both secondary sources and communication from the ground.”
