COVID-19 SURVEY OF CR PROGRAMS GLOBALLY
ICCPR’s survey of CR programs globally has now closed. We received approximately 1100/~5753 program responses from 75/111 countries with CR. Thank you to all the programs who participated.
Resources identified by programs are collated below (you are welcome to email us with new resources to add as they become available at firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are now analyzing the data, and look forward to sharing learnings with the CR community in due course. We hope to work together to mitigate COVID-19 impacts identified in ways we can.
