“Tackling stigma and discrimination experienced by people with disabilities is a crucial development and human rights issue. The discrimination people with disabilities
experience is often compounded by discrimination based on other identities such as gender, age, ethnicity, religion or migrant status. People with disabilities also experience stigmatising attitudes. These are inaccurate perceptions and beliefs that can be widespread in society and can often result in and underpin exclusion, and sometimes exploitation, abuse and violence.”

Our C4D & Disability section takes a more in-depth look at disability issues and considers how Communication for Development (C4D) as an area of development practice can contribute to meaningful participation and lasting positive change.
