Project

Participatory Action Research with Disabled Adolescents in Nepal (PARDAN)

Intersecting vulnerabilities of disability, low socio-economic status, marginalisation and age indicate that children and young people with disabilities are likely to be uniquely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Yet, there has been limited research from low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) about the effect of the pandemic on children and young people with disabilities.

In order to capture their experience, it is important that they participate in the design of tools and methods to collect data.

We will conduct participatory action research in two rural areas of Nepal to:

  1. Understand how the pandemic has affected children and young people with disabilities and their families.
  2. Develop peer-research methods and tools with children and young people with disabilities to increase their participation in research

Children and young people with disabilities will pilot these tools and inform the development of training materials to increase the participation of children and young people with disabilities in research about current and future public health emergencies.
