Protect Yourself from Covid-19 | Youth Wave Malawi 

By Sylvester Chiweza

Around the world, as a way to slow down the spread of COVID-19, countries have asked their populations to surrender some of their most cherished rights, including freedom of movement, association, and economic activity, all in the interest of the greater good.

These measures are standard public health tools designed to keep populations safe and to keep the health system from collapsing.

However, people voluntarily give up rights on the assumption that the government has the intent and capacity to act in the people’s best interest, and that it will continue to take steps to protect, respect, and fulfil basic human rights, including SRHR.

Lockdown, quarantine, contact tracing and similar measures are premised on the existence of a social contract between the government and the people, and among people.

This social contract confers obligations on all organs of the state, with the health sector playing a key role in preventive and curative care, while other sectors address the social determinants of risk and distribution of SRHR status and COVID-19.
