Research Agenda:

This Working Group will examine the intersection of disability and COVID-19 as a natural hazard—specifically, how this unfolding emergency affects access to and use of attendant care, community resources, medical care, mental health services, public health, and social services. The group is also interested in whether people with disabilities but without underlying health conditions are disproportionately experiencing barriers to information and services in relation to COVID; previous research on other disasters suggests that such barriers consistently occur.
