This report is focused on providing recommendations applicable to the problems of the most vulnerable groups of citizens directly affected by the COVID-19 crisis. To highlight the challenges faced by those groups and point out action-oriented recommendations, members of Working Group 3 were distributed in five subgroups to address specific vulnerable citizens: Children and Youth, Elderly, Women in Vulnerable Conditions, Migrants and Racial/Ethnic Minorities.
Ideas and experiences were exchanged by the members of the subgroups to provide an overview of each vulnerable group’s situation. Regional diversity within the members of the subgroups complemented views and exposed not only different realities, but also common strategies and best practices for interventions by the public and private sectors.
