DFID’s Disability Inclusion Strategy 2018 to 2023

DFID’s first ever Disability Inclusion Strategy sets out how we will deliver our ambition to put people with disabilities at the heart of everything we do.



Since the Global Disability Summit in July 2018, momentum has been building for disability inclusive development worldwide. The summit energised new leadership and concrete actions on disability inclusion, and now is the time to deliver on those. That is why the Department for International Development has published its first ever strategy on disability inclusion – to set out how DFID will put disability at the heart of everything they do. It includes new standards on disability inclusion which all departments will have to meet, and 4 new priority focus areas.
