Struggle for Economic Equality and Social Emancipation

Title:

This pandemic has brought forth the precarious economic situations where people are more exposed to the financial shocks leaving them to face severe health conditions, lack of basic amenities like food, water, housing and lack of resources etc. For it will be the vulnerable population in the society who will be disproportionately affected by these economic shocks. The pandemic has highlighted uneven distribution of opportunities and resources and many challenges has arises for the disadvantageous and marginalized groups including women. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every country and every international bodies and institutions to have the financial commitment earmarked especially for those who are in need and at the risk. It is important to promote universal access to resources and basic services to have a greater resilience for the future crisis. This universality should be comprehensive and non-discriminatory in nature. It is imperative to put more resources on the socio-economic programmes in order to address the rising poverty and inequality. It is important to reshape the economy post-pandemic which is only possible by promoting the inclusive and innovative economic approach. Besides, there is a need for fiscal support focusing on the issue of inequality and discrimination. The policy response towards the crisis should be equitable and affordable to all.

Online launch of PSI paper "The Multilateral Development Banks, Covid-19 and Health Privatisation in India"

Title:

What this paper demonstrates is that the mindset of MDBs is so shaped by neoliberal ideas that, even during a pandemic clearly demonstrating the failures of this approach in healthcare, they continue to espouse them. In some ways, this is not surprising as during crisis, humans tend more than usual to use existing idea, frameworks and tropes to shape action. Thus, the health loans to India in response to the pandemic appear at first as though they will be largely supporting the public sector. However, as one reads the details, it becomes clearer that much of the surge funding will prop-up (struggling) private hospitals.
