Study Session 2  Including People with Disabilities


In Study Session 1 you were introduced to the concepts of inclusion and exclusion from WASH and learned about the different groups of people who are frequently excluded. Now we look more closely at one of these groups, namely people with disabilities and consider how changes in attitudes and practice can create an environment where they are included, rather than excluded.

In this study session you will learn how people with different types of impairment face various barriers in their daily lives that affect their ability to access WASH and other services. You will discover there are several different estimates of the number of people in Ethiopia who have disabilities. The session includes some tips for communicating with and about people with disabilities and concludes with a brief discussion of approaches to collecting data on disability and inclusive WASH.
