Disabilities among refugees and conflict-affected populations:resource kit for field workers

Format:Toolkit
Publication year: 
2008

The World Health Organisation estimates that between 7 and 10 per cent of the world’s population live with disabilities.  This means between 2.5 and 3.5 million of the worlds displaced people also live with disabilities, and research shows they are among the most hidden, neglected and socially excluded of all displaced people.  This resource kit provides practical ideas on how to improve services and protection for people with disabilities and enhance their inclusion and participation in community affairs.  It is designed as a companion publication to the report “Disabilities among Refugees and Conflict-Affected Populations".
