Abstract

People living in and those displaced from conflict-affected low-and middle-income countries encounter a unique set of considerations related to the COVID-19 outbreak. This commentary provides Somali perspectives on the global pandemic, highlighting challenges at the intersections of collective trauma and displacement while also emphasizing substantial community resilience experienced in part through faith and social connection.
