This seminar presents and contextualizes the initial results from the Health Care Workers study, a multinational, bottom-up initiative aimed to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of health care workers in Latin America and elsewhere. We showcase four countries: Bolivia, Chile, Mexico and Brazil, and include examination of factors impacting mental health such as sociodemographics (e.g., gender), workplace (e.g., availability of personal protection equipment), and context (e.g., lack of trust in government).
