Development is only sustainable if it is equitable. Inclusive development and health service delivery increases security and broadens opportunities for all. By ensuring disability perspectives in research, policy and practice, the whole of society benefits. Our work delivers practical targeted and mainstreamed solutions for real world impact. We work to ensure equitable participation in development for persons with disabilities and others at risk of exclusion.
From 2017 - 2021, we aim to:
- Improve disability data, measurement, and the monitoring of progress towards national, regional and international commitments to disability inclusion.
- Improve access to health care and development actions for persons with disabilities.
- Better understand and address the relationship between disability and disproportionate risk to build inclusive and resilient societies.
