Consultation Response: Written evidence by the GDI Hub to the Global Disease Outbreaks Inquiry

Written Evidence Submitted by the Global Disability Innovation Hub to the UK Science, Research and Technology Capability and Influence in Global Disease Outbreaks Inquiry.

The response to this inquiry aims to share the lessons learned from the work GDI Hub has been doing in Low- and Middle-income Countries (LMICs) in the inclusive design and assistive technology (AT) sphere and how this was crucial for the quick reaction, and pivoting of activities to support the response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
