Summary:

The article highlights how COVID-19 is impacting the world as we see it as well as the world that we don’t see. People who are excluded from society, like those without identification, without access to water and electricity, without access to healthcare because of geographical location, poverty, not to mention displaced by regional conflict are the worst hit. Those who were struggling before COVID 19, will be the hardest hit in this pandemic. This is why universal healthcare plays such an important role. MSF, aka Doctors without Borders, is an international independent medical humanitarian organization that provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemic, disaster, or exclusion from healthcare. MSF has been providing assistance since 1971 around the world. In 2016, MSF established a branch office in Taiwan, and as of last year (2019) they have formally established themselves as the MSF /Doctors without Borders Taiwan Foundation.
