The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on disabled people in the Global South
- Friday 30 April 2021 (11:00-12:00)
This webinar will present the findings from a literature review on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on disabled people in the Global South, particularly in Low-and-Middle-Income countries, which was conducted as part of the AHRC-funded GCRF Network+ Disability Under Siege project to support a disability-inclusive recovery from COVID-19.
Research Fellow Vera Kubenz will present the key findings and themes emerging from the literature. Mohua Paul, Vice Chairperson at the Access Bangladesh Foundation, will then speak about first-hand experiences by disabled people in Bangladesh. There will be time for questions at the end.
The event will last one hour. Captions and a British Sign Language interpreter will be available. If you have any further access requirements or any other questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
