The Impact of Covid Restrictions on Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Case Study of Pandemic Policy Harms in Tamil Nadu – Prof T Sundararaman

Conference Hub

This conference is the first anywhere in the world to consider collectively the impacts of Covid suppression measures in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. The conference brings together scholars from the health and social sciences who have been working on questions regarding education, gender, socioeconomic impacts and political economies related to the Covid response. While there has been much focus on these questions in High Income Countries, there has yet to be a sustained and inter-regional discussion from Low- and Middle-Income Countries. This conference addresses this disparity.
