    Thanks for gathering and curating some good resources. Do you know what work is being done on integrating a “do least harm” lens into containment measures like lockdowns? I mean do least harm with respect to deepening poverty, increasing gender-based violence, widening inequality, etc. Especially as strict containment measures are extended more broadly in developing countries, what can be done to support/influence governments to think of how to do least socioeconomic harm while doing what is necessary in terms of public health? I’ve seen stuff on NGOs working to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and also advocacy re economic stimulus to protect the most vulnerable – but haven’t seen much on whether containment measures (curfews, lockdowns) themselves can be designed to do least harm while preventing transmission. Would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.
