KEOGH, Mary
January 2014

This first publication in our series on disability inclusive development covers key facts and figures on the situation of women, men, girls and boys with disabilities living in lowincome countries and presents the reasons why development and humanitarian actions must be disability-inclusive. •

Chapter 1 introduces the key concepts in disability-inclusive development and reflects also on CBM’s own journey towards disability-inclusive development.

Chapter 2 highlights why the inclusion of women, men, girls and boys with disabilities is important for effective development and humanitarian outcomes.  

Chapter 3 sets out why the human rights of women, men, girls and boys with disabilities are closely associated with development both at home and in international cooperation.

Chapter 4 highlights the key issues which cause barriers to disability-inclusive development, and provides a set of principles, case studies and good practice examples of how it can be achieved.  

Chapter 5 concludes with some key messages and introduces the topics that we will address in future publications in this series.

HIV and AIDS and disability

NARIB, Leitago D
2003

Expand view

This report gives a general overview of HIV/AIDS and disability. It reports on the group discussions that took place during the conference on different types of disability and HIV/AIDS, demonstrating that the lack of access to information is a specific problem especially for visually impaired and hearing-impaired people. Different aspects of HIV/AIDS and disability were explored during the conference, including the production of HIV/AIDS materials and the inclusion or exclusion of disabled people within this process; HIV/AIDS and the workplace; minorities; gender issues; education; and organisations of disabled people. Discussions revealed that disabled people see HIV/AIDS not as a topic in itself, but as part of the bigger problem of marginalisation in general. The main recommendations arising from the conference were to establish a task force in the NFPDN to work on a programme on HIV/AIDS and disability, to network and cooperate with mainstream HIV/AIDS organisations, and to establish baseline data on HIV/AIDS

Community based care for separated children

TOLFREE, David K
2003

Expand view

The International Save the Children’s Alliance organised a project called ‘Care and Protection of Separated Children in Emergencies’ to address the issue of children that are separated from their parents in situations of armed conflict, natural disasters, pandemics such as AIDS and various forms of exploitation and abuse. The initiative explored issues of fostering, group care, and other types of care arrangements for children. The project produced case studies in 6 countries. Participatory research with children was a key theme. This paper offers a ten-point analysis of the typical negative features of institutional care and then looks at community based care. This is done firstly under the heading of preventative approaches to avoid the unnecessary separation of children, then alternative care strategies such as community based care. There are some concluding comments pointing towards the need for further research and the need to place more emphasis on what children themselves have to say in research, in policy formulation and in developing good practice
