We present this Academic Talk with four expert speakers from Mexico. Our speakers focus on the impact COVID-19 has had in Mexico and the main issues consequential to the pandemic. Each speaker shared their expertise in their own field and present possible solutions at a policy-making level. The topics discussed include: public health measures, women’s health and social protection policies.
In our Q&A, the speakers have an open discussion around policy responses for health and social protection to address new challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought on.
