The second issue deals with determining the best methodology to understand disability in the individual, family, community and societal setting out of the many methodologies that can be employed in these situations...The third issue is about ensuring that the information gathered is disseminated broadly, which means sharing the information generated not only with those interested in disability issues, but also with those working on issues such as development policy, social change and justice, who know little about disability
