Promoting equity: cross-cutting disability in international development research. Cross Cutting Disability Research Programme (CCDRP) Final Dissemination Conference, University College London, London, UK, 17 June 2013
This one day final dissemination conference showcased research findings, outputs and policy implications from the DFID funded Cross-Cutting Disability Research Programme which finishes in June 2013.
The project has explored how to mainstream disability in international health and development programmes, ranging from a peri-urban agriculture project in Kenya; maternal and child health programme in rural Nepal; mental health programme in New Delhi; to water and sanitation projects in rural Zambia and Uganda. The programme also supported Disabled People’s Organisations, and local academic institutions to mainstream disability and development research. Members of the Cross-Cutting Disability Research Programme team and field-based research partners from Africa and Asia, presented key findings and highlights from research as well as discussed challenges and opportunities arising from the overall project approach.
