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.
