"This article, based on the extensive experience of Handicap International in the field of emergency actions, describes why taking into account disability at an early stage of a crisis (or even better in a disaster preparedness phase) can prevent complications, diminish the number of disabled victims and so safe lives and livelihoods. It also gives some ideas to improve practice"

(From introducton) This bibliography, currently with approx. 1400 items, began in 1996 with a focus on the development of non-medical services concerned with mental retardation (mental handicap, learning difficulties, intellectual impairment) in Zambia. The development of services for people with other disabilities, and for children, and childrearing and language use, and then developments in neighbouring countries, soon began to be added. Then the weight of the new material outgrew the initial focus. Some biomedical papers have been added for their social contents or where a community-based or health education program concerned with biomedical conditions seems relevant to the development of disability awareness in communities. Newspaper and magazine-type articles have mostly been omitted. Available to download from the CIRRIE website
