Inclusivity and Accessibility to Welfare and Sustainable Living After the Pandemic
The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed and forever scared our lives. The WHO released health advice as a protective measure to minimize the virus transmission rate, some of the measures is to avoid human to human contact. These protective measures quickly became state order measures all over the globe. Over the past two years of pandemic, our ability to grow and innovate as a global citizen has been put on hold. The COVID- 19 pandemic has brought global uncertainty and put a lot of people in an unfortunate situation.
The World Health Organization released a scientific brief that revealed global cases of anxiety and depression have increased by 25% in the first year of the pandemic. Asian Development Bank stated that In Southeast Asia, The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed 4.7 million people to extreme poverty in 2021. By the end of 2021 Development Initiatives released a fact sheet which stated that there were 698 million people or around 9% of the world population who lived in extreme poverty. This data shows that the COVID-19 has put a lot of people in extreme struggles and possibly put people in marginalized groups. These obstacles are even harder to overcome for people with preexisting struggles.
In order for us to move forward, we need a collective move and commitment to rebuild our lives together. It is crucial for us to firstly identify the problem for the sake of tackling the social struggles arising after the pandemic. Our goal is to build an inclusive social welfare that could benefit us all in rebuilding our lives after the pandemic. By identifying the problem and the struggles amongst the marginalized people, we hope to formulate the balance in rebuilding.
