Who’s affected most by COVID and why? Who deserves to receive care? And how can we treat everyone equally – both in society and in the hospital? This week’s episode of Contakt World dives into the hot-button issues of race, equal access to healthcare, and the political determinants of health – specifically, how historic inequities in our health system have never been more apparent.
