Feb 11, 2021

This report examines the effect that Covid-19 and its subsequent confinement has had on people’s lives as well as their physical and mental well-being. The report relied on in-depth interviews with a sample of health professionals and telemedicine users to gather qualitative evidence on the impact of Covid-19 on physical and mental health, on the effectiveness of telemedicine as an alternative strategy for accessing healthcare services in Bahrain during the pandemic, and on how telemedicine practices can be improved in the future.

This research report showed that the Covid-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the lives and physical and mental wellbeing of the Bahraini population in several ways, including on their ability to manage their lifestyles, ability to manage their chronic diseases, and on their mental health, particularly for individuals aged 18-45 years old.
