Women's Health Loddon Mallee is calling out to local women that live with compromised immune systems to share their experiences of "living with COVID".
The regional women's health service is raising the voices of those that are considered at risk of becoming seriously ill or hospitalised as a result of contracting COVID-19.
Women's Health Loddon Mallee chief executive Tricia Currie said their aim was to encourage more people to get their booster shot and to continue to practice safe mask-wearing and hygiene measures.
"We recognise and acknowledge that there are various and compounding challenges for women in our region with compromised immune systems and their carers," she said.
"By centering these women's voices and telling their stories we hope to build compassion amongst the wider community and a greater understanding of the challenges many people in the community are currently facing."
Disability advocate, writer and broadcaster Jasper Peach will be interviewing participants to gain an understanding of the various ways that women and non-binary people with compromised immunity and their carers have been affected by the pandemic.
People that are interested in taking part in the project can do so by visiting the Women's Health Loddon Mallee website and registering their interest.
Participants whose stories are shared would also receive a $100 voucher for their time.
