WBU Launches Survey on COVID-19

Dear members,

The World Blind Union (WBU) has developed a short survey to identify challenges faced by blind and partially sighted persons during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. 

WBU is undertaking this survey to understand how best to advocate for blind and partially sighted persons to ensure that COVID-19 response strategies are inclusive and accessible. 

The survey can be completed in less than 20 minutes and it is available in English, French, and Spanish. 

WBU recognises the unprecedented challenges emerging from this pandemic and is taking the opportunity to learn and establish practical solutions and best practices for the future. We realise that your needs and solutions may vary from country to country and we want to learn from your experiences and define best strategies to overcome the pandemic. We are confident that information and data collected will become a powerful tool for our advocacy efforts among governments, UN agencies and key stakeholders.

Your testimonies will also enable us to understand how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting your day-to-day life. The learnings and practical solutions gathered will be shared widely for the benefit of our community. We want to ensure that your voices are heard, and no one is left behind.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this important survey and circulate it widely to your networks. The survey link is:

If you encounter any difficulties or accessibility issues while completing the survey, please kindly contact us at Please also note that we may contact you to follow up on some of your responses. 

Thank you in advance for your collaboration.
