We invite you to take part in a short online anonymous international survey to help understand how people are coping during the Covid-19 pandemic. We want to learn about the issues you face and how you are managing with social distancing and changes to everyday life.

You can offer invaluable insights into life before and during the Covid-19 pandemic, including key challenges and coping strategies. This information will help us understand how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on individuals, families, communities and services at both a country and global level.

This study is being undertaken by a group of International academic researchers who are part of the International Loneliness and Isolation research NetworK (I-LINK).  IPH performs a secretariat function for I-LINK..
