We are still learning how to live with the effects of COVID-19 years after the initial outbreak. COVID-19 continues to pose a threat to all communities. However, research has shown that some populations are more vulnerable to the negative effects of this disease than others. This course will explore the intersecting factors of healthcare and social protection on COVID-19 outcomes and give special focus to people who are displaced and/or living in low-income areas. This course will also address updated COVID-19 recommendations for appropriate and safe rehabilitation handling and care.


This course aims to introduce the challenges COVID-19 causes for vulnerable populations living in challenging and socioeconomically disadvantaged contexts.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Videos
  2. Reading Activities
  3. Quiz
