Are you looking for disability inclusive COVID-19 response tools? We have assembled a collection of practical tools such as sign-language videos, infographics, easy-read materials and accessible protection methods.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, to be a pandemic, due to the speed and scale of transmission. Certain populations, such people with disabilities, may be impacted more significantly by COVID-19. This impact can be mitigated if simple actions and protective measures are taken by key stakeholders.
Persons with disabilities must receive information in a diversity of accessible formats with use of accessible technologies. For people with certain types of impairment additional protective measures must be taken. We hope this list of tools will help to make this easier.
We will update this document on a regular basis. If you have any tools you would like us to include, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
