Disability inclusive development approaches

People with disabilities face higher levels of poverty and barriers to accessing services and are likely to also be disproportionately affected by COVID-19. This report presents a synthesis of the emerging evidence of the health, economic and social impact of COVID-19 on people with disabilities in low and middle-income countries in Asia and the Pacific.

By drawing on the lessons learned from the recent Ebola crisis in West Africa in 2013-2016 it is possible to examine what we, as aid practitioners, have learned about mental health and humanitarian response, and secondly, what CBM can do to ensure that vulnerable people do not fall down the cracks.
