People with disability have been overlooked by the Australian Government’s response to COVID-19, according to UNSW Canberra researcher Professor Helen Dickinson.

Professor Dickinson, who is also a Chief Investigator with the Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health, said people with disability are a vulnerable population in the coronavirus pandemic because they are at an elevated risk due to underlying health conditions.
