Abstract:
In this talk Fatima talks about the implications of prolonged exposure to terrorism, and the current context of Covid-19. She highlights the influence of stress and trauma due to loss, and how that impacts us in terms of drawing closer to those we trust, while the fear of death makes our social attitudes rigid, especially towards those who are different. This complexity can cause polarity and discrimination within workplaces.

CARE News: Professor Mohan J Dutta serves as an advisor on the WHO-Europe Expert Advisory Group on Cultural Contexts of Health

Professor Mohan J Dutta serves as an advisor on the WHO-Europe Expert Advisory Group on Cultural Contexts of Health. In this role, Professor Mohan Dutta offered expert insights into strategies for addressing pandemic fatigue. These insights are relevant now more than ever.

  • Understand people. Collect and use evidence for targeted, tailored and effective policies, interventions and communication.
  • Allow people to live their lives, but reduce risk. Wide-ranging restrictions may not be feasible for everyone in the long run.
  • Engage people as part of the solution. Find ways to meaningfully involve individuals and communities at every level.
  • Acknowledge and address the hardship people experience and the profound impact the pandemic has had on their lives.
