INDIAN ACCESSIBLE DISABILITY DATA (I-ADD)

Expand view

This interactive database aims to create a 'bridge' between service providers and persons with disability in India. Whilst India has signed and ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, reliable information is still needed to enable planning of rehabilitation services in rural and urban areas
Two types of databases are available on this website. One is an initiative of Rehabilitation Council of India in collaboration with CBR Network which provides a database on non government organizations, disabled people’s organizations, special schools, inclusive schools, community based organizations, parents groups, self-help groups and training institutes working in disability sector in India. The second database is an initiative of CBR NETWORK (South Asia) and Karnataka Child Rights Commission which provides data available through disability registers-village disability register and urban disability register. This data provides information on the individuals with disabilities and their needs, and also provides profiles of village panchayaths in India
This information can be used to assess the extent of human resource development required, allocating funds for programmes such as community-based rehabilitation, inclusive education, early intervention, skill development and employment opportunities
