Advocacy for All
A quick guide to including disability in development policy

March 2013 pdf

This document aims to assist policy and advocacy officers to identify where and how to address disability throughout their own policy content.

People with disability make up over twenty percent of all of the world’s poorest people. This high prevalence means that disability is relevant to all development issues, from women’s health to WASH, education, disaster risk reduction and everything in between.

All development policy and advocacy materials should therefore include a line or two about the importance of including people with disabilities.

This document includes:

• A checklist to help identify where and how disability is relevant to your policy content.

• Further resources to assist you to find out more about how disability relates to your policy content.

• Useful facts relating to disability and development that you may wish to include in your policy content.
