The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cast a dark cloud over several countries battling the second wave of COVID-19 infections – a threat lurking around the corner for others. Compounding this problem are issues of inequality in society, against a landscape of loss, illness, and uncertainty in a new normal. The August issue of INSIGHT examines some of these topics including a reflection on the Measles epidemic in Samoa by Rev. Dr Alesana Pala’amo of Congregational Christian Church Samoa (CCCS) and an up-close look at the volatile struggle for freedom in West Papua among others.
