Impaired Millennium Development Goals? [editorial]

Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development (DCDD)
October 2005

Expand view

This editorial censures the absence of an explicit mention of disability in the Millennium Development Goals. Disabled people are often among the most excluded and marginalised, particularly in poor communities, but not reference to disability is made in any of the 48 indicators of the MDGs. Policy targets will achieve little if people are excluded from development processes, and disabled people are not being heard and allowed to make their contribution. The article calls for awareness raising, increased disability advocacy, recognition of disability as a 'cross-cutting' issue, crucially interlocked with poverty, and transparent programme-monitoring systems
