About Our Partnership

The Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI), supported by a grant from the CDC Foundation with technical assistance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has created COVID-19 resources in alternative formats based upon CDC’s guidance.

"Like so many groups, the COVID-19 pandemic is creating dangers and hardships on people living with disabilities," said Judy Monroe, MD, president and CEO of the CDC Foundation. "To help address some of the challenges being faced by people in this community, we are pleased to support the work of the team at CIDI and their partners working to create accessible emergency materials. Importantly, we believe this project can inform serving this community during future public health threats as well."
