As a tenet of building design, access has recently become a more central topic in architecture consciousness. The panel will discuss the synergy between health equity, access, and informal settlements. In particular, what can be learned from disparities common to informal settlements to evaluate equitable health access in places challenged by the post-pandemic conditions? To be healthy is to be inclusive, to hold space for wellness for everyone. In terms of the city, this means involving persons across a broad spectrum of socio-economic strata and addressing the disparities that plague the most demanding conditions.
