The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on disabled people in the Global South
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.

The webinar will be introduced by Dina Kiwan, Professor of Comparative Education at the University of Birmingham. 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 type them into the relevant box below or email v.i.kubenz@bham.ac.uk

The webinar will be recorded and made available on the Disability Under Siege website a few days after the event: https://disabilityundersiege.org/unprpd-project/ The link to the recording will also be shared directly with all those who have registered.
