Globalization in Times of a Pandemic: The Effects on Vulnerable Populations
Project Multimedia
Project Scope
Project Description

Globalization has a double face. On the one hand, it brings to the table the free flow of trade, investments, and profits across nations with the hope of improving global integration; that eventually will produce the best economic, social, and political outcomes for humanity. On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemics have made clear that globalization has unintended health risks, and marginalized communities are left in an even more vulnerable position. A good example of how globalization affects indigenous and vulnerable populations is the Mayan Communities in the Yucatan Peninsula. It is time to call the global community to work together to fight the pandemic. This call is based on the notion of social responsibility in health care–the moral duty held by all societies to promote health, prevent and treat diseases, and provide the highest attainable standard of health.
