Social response to COVID-19 in Aotearoa/New Zealand: Obligations and stigmatisation

Event date:

The ultimate goal of this symposium is to better understand New Zealand’s responses to the pandemic and provide practical advice to support wellbeing during and in the wake of the pandemic. Researchers from a wide range of disciplines are invited to present their COVID-19-related research findings, which have a particular focus on New Zealand's pandemic context. Presentations can cover, but are not limit to, the themes listed below:

  1. Public knowledge and messaging of COVID-19
  2. Pandemic planning and resource access
  3. COVID-19-related social inequality and its impact on different communities
  4. Post-pandemic recovery

This symposium is an opportunity to connect with other research teams who are also engaging in COVID-19-related research and build up research collaborations.
