Call to action by the immunocompromised community in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic

Although the world has moved into the endemic phase of COVID-19, people living with compromised immunity remain at high risk of severe disease course and resultant health complications, long hospitalization, and even death after catching the virus. This puts an enormous burden not only on the immunocompromised and their families but also the healthcare system and economy of their countries.  

Myeloma Canada joined the International Immunocompromised Advocacy Network (IIAN) in their Call to Action to state our unmet needs and challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to propose positive solutions to policymakers and other relevant stakeholders. The needs and protection of immunocompromised community is urgent and will be of benefit to society as a whole.
