Abstract: At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe, calls for societal solidarity often mentioned that everyone can become a target for the virus, without distinctions of race, class, or gender. However, more than 1.5 years into the pandemic, we know that this is not true, and that diverse groups have been particularly affected by Covid-19, both epidemiologically and from a socio-economic perspective. To provide a thorough and exhaustive investigation of the reasons for these developments, cooperation of life and social scientists is essential; this interdisciplinary approach also lies at the center of this webinar. Together with experts from epidemiology, political, and health sciences, we will discuss how the pandemic has affected migrants and minorities in terms of both physical and mental health, drawing also from research about health inequalities in general and touching on the difficulties of reaching and collecting data about diverse groups. Through an analysis of the role of health literacy in preventing and counteracting health inequalities, we will also contemplate potential ways forward and lessons learned regarding the nexus between diversity and health.
