Whānau Hauā | If you have a disability

It is really important that the voice of
te whānau hauā | people with disability
is heard in our research

Nau mai, haere mai

The aim of the study is to understand the experiences of people in Aotearoa New Zealand who have had COVID-19 prior to December 2021, and the impact that this has had on their health and wellbeing and the health and wellbeing of their whānau or families. The outcomes of this study will inform recommendations about how to better support people with COVID-19. It’s important that the voices of all people are heard in the results, so we want as many people as possible who have had COVID-19 to take part, including those with disability. Get in touch if there is any way we could make it easier for you to participate.
