COVID-19: Charter of Demands by Oxfam India

COVID-19: Charter of Demands by Oxfam India

  • 27 Mar, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented, once in a century, public health, social and economic emergency. It has disrupted lives, impacted the economy and brought into focus prevailing social and economic inequality in the country. The government’s response including the 21-day lockdown is an unprecedented step that shows it’s cognizance of the gravity of the situation. However, much more needs to be done. Oxfam India presents its SEVEN-PRONGED PEOPLE’S PACKAGE.

The package, we are suggesting, should have increased tests and proper healthcare facilities, setting up a system to provide essential services to the elderly, ill and differently-abled, safety nets for the informal workers, and support systems to out of school children and women, especially those who are victims of domestic violence.
