ALSWH COVID-19 Survey 8: Report 8

The COVID-19 Surveys provide timely insight into women’s health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The fortnightly surveys have been deployed via email to women in the three ALSWH cohorts born 1989-95, 1973-78, and 1946-51, since late April 2020. Each rapid survey includes:

  • Opportunity to provide free-text comments
