Vulnerabilities and Policy Priorities for South Africa’s COVID-19 Third Wave

Vulnerabilities and Policy Priorities for South Africa's COVID-19 Third Wave
IEJ-COVID-19-policy-brief-series

COVID-19 infections continue to rise as South Africa’s third wave worsens and the vaccination rollout programme falls short. This comes at a time when most vulnerable groups have lost their income. Furthermore, the relief measures initially extended to workers, households, and businesses have expired, causing a humanitarian crisis.

This Policy Brief highlights the differentiated impact of the pandemic and the vulnerabilities it has exacerbated for workers, businesses, women, and children. It also explores how some of these groups were not rescued by initial relief efforts, and lays bare people’s dire economic needs as the third wave worsens.

It's was all smiles @REFAFestival student convenings, signing off the festival on a high note: engaging with & embracing all our different university chapters across the country. And yes! we will continue to spread the movement to every community in Africa & beyond!😁
