About the product

The publication provides a snapshot of disability statistics and information in the region, particularly with regards to the population of persons with disabilities, the definition of disability, and national policy, programmes and institutional mechanisms on disability matters. The compilation serves as a point of reference whereby Governments, researchers, organizations of persons with disabilities, and other stakeholders are encouraged to take further action to enhance their data collection efforts and create an inclusive, barrier-free, and rights-based society.
