20070320 Children with Disabilities: Their households’ livelihoods and experiences in accessing key services in Zimbabwe

This study was jointly commissioned by FAO and UNICEF to investigate and document livelihoods of households with children with disabilities; how they are affected by and respond to HIV and AIDS; how this affects the children’s access to key services and the children’s vulnerability to violence and abuse. Parallel to all this, the study was expected to gauge capacity development needs of households and communities studied. The study was prompted by the paucity of information on children with disabilities and how they are affected by these multifaceted adversities.
