Pandemic Research project
The Pandemic Research Project looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the mental health and wellbeing of women with disability.
Women have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic due to several factors, including economic insecurity, over-representation in certain sectors of the economy, and caring responsibilities.
The research undertaken in this project examines the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has specifically impacted women with disability.
The project also explores potentially positive changes adopted during the pandemic, such as the introduction of telehealth, online education and digital access to the arts.
This PWDA research project is funded under the National Mental Health and Wellbeing Pandemic Response Plan, which aims to better understand the challenges faced by ‘priority population groups.’ It also suggests ways in which women with disability can be better supported in the future.
