You are being invited to participate in a research study titled “Developing post-COVID-19 support in the Global South”. This study is being led by Prof Sally Singh (University of Leicester, UK) and the Global RECHARGE teams in India (Symbiosis Deemed University), Kyrgyzstan (National Centre of Cardiology and Internal Medicine), Sri Lanka (University of Sri Jayewardenepura) and Uganda (Makerere University Lung Institute) (https://www.globalrecharge.org.uk/).

We are looking for ways to help all people recovering from COVID-19 in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We hope the questionnaire will take 5-10 minutes of your time and will help us to understand how best to help people who have been affected by COVID-19.

We are not asking for any personal information and all data collected will be anonymous. Information provided will not be able to identify individuals. We will be unable to delete your data as we will be unable to identify which data belongs to you.

The survey has been approved by the University of Leicester College of Life Science Committee for Research Ethics Concerning Human Subjects (Non-NHS).

If you have any questions, please email us at recharge@leicester.ac.uk.

Under-18s should not complete the survey.

Your participation is entirely voluntary, and you can stop the questionnaire at any time. You are free to omit any question.
