Following a meeting of its members on Thursday, 7 May 2020, the ILC Global Alliance has prepared a Position Statement on COVID-19.

The ILC Global Alliance membership is regionally diverse, and its members in both the Global North and the Global South are united in their concern for the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on individuals, families and communities.  In particular, the Global Alliance (GA) stands in support of the most vulnerable members of society during the pandemic: older persons, persons with underlying morbidities, and members of specific ethnic and socio-economic groups. Above all, the ILC-GA members extend sympathy to all families who have lost a loved one to the virus, typically without an opportunity to bid them farewell.
