This guide is intended to support countries in embedding inclusion and equity in educational policy. It supports Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 on education calls for inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. The guide is intended for use primarily by key government education policy-makers working with key stakeholders. The guide provides an assessment framework that can serve to: review how well equity and inclusion currently figure in existing policies; decide which actions are needed to improve policies and their implementation towards equitable and inclusive education systems; and monitor progress. The guide includes evidence that informs the assessment framework, examples of initiatives that are contributing to more inclusive and equitable education systems in different parts of the world, and recommendations for further reading.

Expand view

This resource pack aims to help decision makers in government ministries strategise their contribution to the response to HIV and AIDS. With a particular slant for governments that work with Sector-Wide Approaches (SWAps), it offers examples and models for integrating a mainstreamed approach to HIV and AIDS across any areas of government or civil society activity. Usefully, it offers a carefully thought-through and well-explained definition for mainstreaming, which helps establish the goals and limits of mainstreamed activities, and positions them in relation to the core functions and responsibilities of a government body

A case study of the community based rehabilitation programme in Mongolia

SHARMA, Manoj

"This paper presents a case study of the status of the community based rehabilitation programme in Mongolia. The case study is based on participatory dialogue conducted in the summer of 2000 with key personnel associated with the programme. The country has tried to implement a different model for the implementation of a CBR programme and must be one of the rare examples where such a huge geographical coverage has been achieved. At the same time, the difficulties in monitoring make it difficult to assess the real coverage in terms of access, acceptability and impact on the lives of disabled persons in the rural areas"
