Disabled people and the COVID-19 pandemic: lessons for policy
July 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFREE but booking required - see entry for details
The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted the lives of disabled people, deepening and widening existing inequalities. Disabled people have faced triple jeopardy of higher risk from death, reduced accessibility to health and social care services, and the additional impact of social barriers.
This session brings together academics and disabled people’s organisations to share learning from research conducted with and by disabled people about the pandemic and its consequences.
The focus of this event will not be on describing what went wrong, but on learning the lessons for the future. After initial presentations from the 6 participants, the second half of the event will be a participative discussion of policy recommendations.
