The International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED) is a research group based at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). Our mission is to provide evidence to improve the health and wellbeing of people with disabilities globally.
This conference seeks to bring together people to discuss and debate disability and COVID-19. The focus will be on new research findings, methodologies, tools and implications of evidence for policy and practice. The focus will include both low-, middle- and high-income settings as well as humanitarian contexts.
COVID-19 has dominated global discourse for the last two years as the pandemic impacts everyone, everywhere. There is growing evidence that people with disabilities and their families are particularly at risk during the pandemic, in terms of increased risk of death and hospitalisation, exclusion from the COVID-19 response actions (e.g. information and vaccination), adverse consequences of COVID-19 control activities (e.g. socioeconomic and well-being impacts of lockdowns and social distancing) and negative impacts on health (e.g. reduction in rehabilitation care).
Please join us from 14-17th March 2022 from 12:00 – 14:00 (UK) each day for the 6th International Conference on Disability and Development: Disability and COVID-19.
Attendees are welcome to join the daily plenary sessions and then select to attend one of the two daily breakout sessions.
Captioning and International Sign Language will be available across sessions.
