‘I felt forgotten and not heard’ – Samoan disability advocate on Covid-19 response

Samoan Paralympic champion Jordon Milroy’s message comes after the release of findings from a Human Rights Commission’s inquiry which found the needs of disabled people were not given importance in the government’s decision-making throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Personally, Covid-19 has impacted how unacceptable and unwilling we are to make society more accessible,” he says.
