Forging disability inclusion in Africa


To generate assets, abilities and knowledge on disability inclusion with specific focus on youth in Africa within a global context.

The Division of Disability Studies in the Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences was initiated in 2003 as the first of its kind on the African continent. This programme seeks to develop research capacity and academic leadership that will contribute to the understanding of disability in context, as an issue of social justice.
