COVID-19 poses a severe threat to all communities, but refugees, people who are displaced and those living in low-income areas will face even greater challenges. This course will introduce the issues faced by refugees/displaced people in camps and camp-like settings as well as explore various options that may help to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in high-risk individuals in these settings.
