Bridging health, peace and security: The role of trust and community engagement

14 mai, 2021

 

Interpeace was delighted to participate in the 2021 Stockholm Forum on Peace and Development on the theme ‘Promoting Peace in the Age of Compound Risk’. You can watch the high-level panel-event co-hosted by Interpeace on Health and Peace: “Bridging heatlh, peace and security: The role of trust and community engagement”.

The Covid-19 pandemic is the greatest public health crisis in generations and has devastating impacts on lives and livelihoods. The emergence of a suite of vaccines represents a beacon of hope that we may soon stem the tide of the pandemic. Multilateral initiatives, such as the COVAX facility, play a crucial role in ensuring an equitable distribution of vaccines to developing countries. This does not, however, guarantee success on the home straight in getting vaccines into arms.   The pandemic, and accompanying infodemic, have exacerbated existing inequalities and mistrust between groups and towards authorities. This is particularly acute in countries affected by violence and conflict. To succeed, the international community and health practitioners need to anticipate and address resistance to and tensions surrounding vaccine campaigns and health systems, as well as the challenges of gaining access in dangerous contexts.  This session explores the necessity to focus on trust and community engagement to the fight against the pandemic and the opportunity this represents to build greater confidence in community cooperation and in governance systems.
