Podcast Episode: How COVID-19 is Affecting Sex Workers and People Who Use Drugs

July 16, 2020

For third episode of our special series on the coronavirus crisis, we’re rebroadcasting an episode of Public Health on Call, a podcast produced by the Bloomberg School of Public Health that offers science and evidence-based insights on the novel coronavirus.

This episode—originally broadcast on May 21, 2020—focuses on harm reduction: how COVID-19 is impacting sex workers and people who use drugs, and why caring for these populations is so important.

It features a conversation between Colleen Barry, chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Bloomberg School, and Susan Sherman, a professor at the Bloomberg School whose work focuses on improving the health of marginalized populations, particularly that of drug users and sex workers.
