One Year of Covid-19
Today marks one year since the World Health Organisation declared Covid 19 a global pandemic.
One full year. One year in which our lives were upended and changed.
One year in which the WFD and our partners mobilized to ensure deaf people were not forgotten and left behind, but included.
We worked to set high standards for access to information, and over 100 countries have had some sign language interpretation on their television broadcasts related to the pandemic.
We worked to monitor educational access for deaf learners, and disseminated standards for continuity of education during the pandemic.
We worked to establish clear guidelines for access to health settings and health information.
And we are continuing to work to ensure all deaf people around the globe should have equitable access to Covid-19 vaccines.
This past year, we have had many video meetings with our members and regions. This past year was a challenge, but I see our global deaf communities have met this challenge. We are dispersed, but still remain connected.
And we will remain connected, as we see the end of the pandemic coming closer and look forwards the future.
Together, we are united and resolute!
