How can we measure disability in research related to the COVID-19 response?
Equity Depth Local Relevance Feasibility
Use the Washington Group Enhanced Short Set (WGES), supplemented by other tools as relevant
Dedicate sufficient resources to translation and training
Follow guidance to analyse, disaggregate, interpret and present data
Where insufficient resources exist to embed the WGES, consider alternatives but invest in pilot testing first
Include assessment of impairments or health conditions depending on the research question and resource availability
Invest in further research to strengthen identification tools for people with disabilities
