The Pandemic of Covid-19 has further aggravated these violence: the isolation of populations has favored the circulation of armed groups in certain areas, which are deprived of real health infrastructures, as Nicolas Dotta explains, the coordinator of The NGO in Colombia, attached to Bogota by Melissa Barra , from the writing in Spanish of RFI.

"It should be understood that violence and conflict have affected historically marginalized territories and who suffer from an abandonment of the permanent state. Already, in urban areas, health infrastructures are insufficient. And in rural areas, access to health is limited to health brigades, that is, the mobile clinics of the state or humanitarian organizations such as doctors in the world, "he explains.

"To eliminate these barriers once for all, a reform of the health system is necessary. This would be to begin, to set up specific programs for victims and territories affected by violence. It is certain that this would imply to completely review the current health service model in Colombia, which is based on private individual insurance. This would require a much larger presence of the state to guarantee the right to the health of people affected by the conflict, "he continues.
