Project Summary

This is a collaboration between Liverpool and the ARCAD in Uganda. The ARCAD is led by Dr Isaac Ddumba. In June 2020, researchers in Uganda conducted 30 semi-structured interviews with older adults (aged 60+) about their experiences of how public health measures have impacted on their lives. We have submitted the first paper which is currently undergoing review, and are hoping for the first findings to be published by Christmas. What already emerged early on from the interviews was the severe impact on the basic necessities of life that the pandemic is having.
