COVID-19 and Mental Health (CMH) Initiative: Research
The GID-COVID Project: Gender and Intervention in Addiction with Individuals in Situations of Social Precarity in the Context of a Pandemic
- Individuals in situations of social precarity who are dealing with problematic substance use run a higher risk of contracting COVID-19. Priority must therefore go toward making them aware of health measures that take into account substance use and the living conditions of marginalized populations.
- During the pandemic, a range of measures must be developed to ensure access to a continuum of harm reduction and treatment services. Certain essential activities, particularly outreach work, must likewise be maintained.
- Sexual and gender diversity must factor into the adaptation of services during the pandemic to prevent further health inequities, especially for women and members of sexual and gender minorities who are dealing with substance use.
