Promoting equity: cross-cutting disability in international development research

17th June 2013 - all day event - Jeremy Bentham Room, Main Campus



This end of programme conference will present highlights from Leonard Cheshire Disability’s UKAID DFID-funded Cross-Cutting Disability Research Programme.

The programme explored how to mainstream a disability component into general international health and development research in a number of selected low- and middle-income countries in Asia and Africa through partnerships with other UK Government-funded research programme consortia (such as urban agriculture; mental health, stigma and poverty; water and sanitation and maternal and child health).

Findings from the research projects will be presented, as well as discussion of the challenges, opportunities and lessons learned from this unique approach to mainstreaming disability across other research areas in the field of international development.

The conference will be followed by an evening reception.
