COVID-19 Disability Rights Monitor

The world, including your country, is facing enormous challenges caused by COVID-19. To support the global understanding of consequences of these challenges on persons with disabilities, this Initiative wants to gather information (i) on the experiences of persons with disabilities, and (ii) on how States are responding to states of emergency situations in relation to this specific population.
In order to ensure that inherent dignity of persons with disabilities is respected worldwide even during this pandemic, you are invited to complete this survey to inform our global advocacies.
