A group of doctors and psychologists launched an initiative to provide psychological support, in its various forms, for medical staff working on the frontlines in fighting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Egypt.
The voluntary (Psychosocial Support for Medical Staff) initiative provides psychological support to medical personnel through the Internet. This initiative comes in light of difficulties and persistent psychological pressure faced by the crews fighting the novel coronavirus around the world. In this context, (Masaar, Community for Technology and Law) appreciates the efforts made by the initiative’s team to provide a voluntary experience as well as the team’s keenness to uphold the values of solidarity and joint social work.
(Masaar) calls on all websites and companies providing services through the web to prioritise users` rights, especially their right to privacy. In light of the increasing demand for services provided through the Internet during this crisis, the right to privacy becomes more important than ever.
