Disability and COVID-19 Twitter Chat – #DisabilityC19

On Monday 6 April between 11:00am and 12:30pm UK time (BST), IDDC participated to a Twitter Chat organised by ARISE on disability and COVID-19.

A Twitter Chat is where a group of Twitter users ‘meet’ at a pre-determined time to discuss a certain topic, using a designated hashtag (#DisabilityC19) for each tweet contributed. Visit the event webpage.

The objectives of this chat are to:

  • Help identify people, organisations and networks with expertise in disability and COVID-19 and source further resources
  • Highlight the particular needs of people with disabilities and potential gaps in the COVID-19 messaging and response (with a focus on low- and middle-income countries)
  • Explore how people with disabilities are being included in the COVID-19 response
