prevalence of disability in Rwanda. Secondly the situation of disabled
people is outlined and the report examines the relationship between

which existing policy and planning documents on disability are being
implemented with particular focus on the key sectors of health and
education. Overall an analysis is given with recommendations for taking
work forward on disability.
