World Bank Works To Reduce Segregation And Poverty For People With Disabilities

July 27, 2004

WASHINGTON, DC--On Monday, the World Bank's website published two articles about its disability advocacy efforts around the globe.
The first focused on the ways that policies and attitudes promoting inclusion of people with disabilities benefit developing and developed countries.

"The aim is to make sure the needs of disabled people are addressed across the board -- in education, housing, transport, the environment, across all the sectors," explained Judy Heumann, the Bank's advisor on disability and development in the Human Development Network.

"We aim to help the Bank and governments understand that there are simple, cheap solutions -- some of which don't cost anything. Allowing a child with a physical disability into a classroom, doesn't cost anything . . . many physically disabled kids need very little help at all."

The second article explored the link between disability and poverty.

One of the challenges, here, is to get accurate information about the number of people who experience a disability. This is particularly difficult because disabilities are defined differently from one culture to the next.

"The way you define disability, how you collect the data, has a big impact on what sort of percentage, what sort of number you get," said Daniel Mont, a social protection specialist with the Disability and Development group at the World Bank.
