Including people with disabilities in responses to the COVID-19 pandemic
This document provides practical guidance for development partners to develop disability-inclusive responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recommendations are provided across nine key areas: intersectionality; assessing gaps and needs; engaging people with disabilities and DPOs; accessible and inclusive communications; healthcare and essential services; livelihoods and social protection; education; independent living and housing; and evidence generation. The recommendations are drawn from key resources, detailed at the end of this document, and guidance developed by Sightsavers’ technical teams.
