At Sightsavers, we want to find new ways to make sure that disability is given more attention within research.
On Thursday 20 February we hosted our first live Twitter chat, where we discussed the current lack of evidence about disability in low and middle income countries, and explored what can be done to ensure that disability is more prominent on the global research agenda.
What if I couldn’t make it?
If you weren’t able to tune in live, we’ve put together a highlights reel with key moments from the discussion.
Please note that this event has now taken place.
At 3pm, introduce yourself and let us know you’ve joined.
Then, just look out for the questions every 10 minutes starting ‘Q1’, ‘Q2’ etc. Tweet your answers by hitting ‘reply’ to the tweet and using ‘A1’, ‘A2’ etc at the start. If your answer is split over a couple of tweets, you can thread them together by replying to your previous post.
Don’t forget to include the hashtag #DisabilityResearchChat.
If you would like to prepare in advance, here are the questions we’ll be tweeting on the day:
