GLADNET Webinar Series: "Disability and Poverty in Developing Countries"

About 15% of the world population lives with some form of disability. Yet little is known about the economic lives of persons with disabilities, especially in developing countries. This webinar presents the findings of a study which for the first time used internationally comparable data to draw an economic profile of persons with disabilities in 15 developing countries. These countries include: seven countries in Africa (Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Zambia, Zimbabwe), four countries in Asia (Bangladesh, Laos, Pakistan, Philippines) and four countries in South America and the Caribbean (Brazil, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Paraguay).Participants in this webinar will explore the findings of the study which documented:

    • In most countries, disability is found to be significantly associated with higher multidimensional poverty;
    • Disability is also found to be associated with lower educational attainment, lower employment rates and higher medical expenditures;
    • Among persons with disabilities, persons aged 40 and above and persons with multiple disabilities were more likely to be multi-dimensionally poor.

    Participants will gain an understanding of the multidimensional perspective of disability and poverty and discuss practical implications to address disparities.
