11/12 July 2006.
For people with disabilities, poverty is multidimensional. It is characterized by:
Material deprivation (low consumption—food--,poor housing)
Low human development (education and health)
Lack of voice and ability to influence decisions that affect their lives
Acute vulnerability to adverse shocks (illness, economic crises, natural disasters, conflict).
In contrast – the medical model which focused on the medical condition of the person.
80% of disabilities stem from preventable causes.
(malnutrition, natural disasters, disease, conflict, traffic & other injuries, birth).
