Addressing the COVID-19 emergency during the ongoing political and economic crisis in Fragile Lebanon: a call to action

Confl Health. 2021 Sep 3;15(1):66. doi: 10.1186/s13031-021-00403-3.


This Letter to the Editor aims to reflect on the current challenges to increase the coverage of COVID-19 vaccination in the fragile and conflict-affected setting of Lebanon, which is currently experiencing one of the biggest economic crises globally as well as a recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Addressing the supply- and demand-related factors affecting vaccination would increase COVID-19 vaccine coverage and prevent the complete collapse of an already overwhelmed Lebanese health care system.

Keywords: COVID-19; Humanitarian crisis; Vaccination.
