As we prepare to live with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future, the long-term effects of the strains on healthcare systems around the world will inevitably impact vulnerable populations significantly. For this reason, the recognition of the unparalleled risks facing older women by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is of particular interest. This IFA Virtual Town Hall explores the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on older women in the East and Southern Africa region and opportunities to collectively support older women particularly in precarious settings.
