GLADNET Webinar Series: "Is there a Disability Gap in Employment Rates in Developing Countries?"

This webinar explores the differences in employment rates between persons with and without disabilities in 15 developing countries using the World Health Survey. 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 this study, including:

    • People with disabilities have lower employment rates than persons without disabilities in nine countries;
    • Across countries, disability gaps in employment rates are more often found for men than women;
    • The largest disability gap in employment rates is found for persons with multiple disabilities; and,
    • For countries with a disability gap, results from a logistic decomposition suggest that observable characteristics of persons with/without disabilities do not explain most of the gap.

Over the course of the webinar, participants will gain an understanding of the national and global implications of the findings in relationship to policy and practice gaps that need to be addressed to facilitate full community-citizenship for people with disabilities.
