Border regions are especially sensitive to the transmission of diseases. Despite being used to stop people from crossing from one country to the other, they cannot prevent the dissemination of viruses and other infectious diseases. Additionally, border regions are generally marginalized regions, whose populations are vulnerable to the country's inequalities - including in terms of public policies. Borders are a point of contact between...
