The COVID-19 pandemic represents a global health crisis. The virus quickly spread across the world, upsetting countries and people at all levels. Global human traffics human traffics and mobility, once considered a blessing of globalization, have become a curse. In this session, we will first explore how globalization may threaten global health and ironically how it may rescue the world from the COVID-19 crisis. In mitigation, the philanthropy sector plays a critical role, particularly in terms of mobilization of global resources. We will then explore how the philanthropy sector can leverage on its strength to mitigate the social impact of COVID-19 on the community.
