– How can we uphold the right to life with dignity for all?
– How can we engage communities and encourage active participation?
– How can we build on the capacities, and meet the needs, of higher-risk groups, including older people and people with disabilities?
– How can medical response be appropriate, community-sensitive, and relevant to people’s needs?
– How can we avoid misinformation, stigmatisation and fear?
