AAG response to the BMJ Editorial Covid-19: control measures must be equitable and inclusive

The BMJ published an Editorial Covid-19: control measures must be equitable and inclusive (BMJ 2020;368:m1141) on 20 March 2020.

AAG wrote a response calling on the World Health Organisation, Governments, service providers, research institutions and other entities to consider how they discuss age sensitively and respectfully when developing policy responses to Covid-19.  The AAG response highlights how this would be supported by adopting an ethical framework to guide resource rationing.  In addition, the AAG response calls for “usual” care to be boosted in the face of COVID-19.
