ICP, like many organizations, has adapted its events and avenues for member engagement as a result of COVID-19 and the world-wide health pandemic.

To address psychosocial, justice and human rights issues during pandemic, ICP convened an ad hoc committee to develop programs as an organizational response.

In addition ICP members began their own projects exploring the effects of COVID-19 nationally, regionally and internationally.

ICP COVID projects include a Webinar Series, an Interview Series, and an (emerging) Blog series.
In addition, we are happy to list ICP member projects. These include collecting “COVID-19 Stories” (Sandra Neil, Australia) and a number of research surveys.
