UNHCR's Approach to Persons With Disabilities in Displacement

It is estimated that around 15 per cent of the world’s population has a disability. This percentage is likely to be higher in displacement situations. However, persons with disability are often under-identified at reception, which negatively impacts their access to protection and assistance.

Forced displacement disproportionately affects persons with disabilities who are more likely to be left behind or abandoned. They are often at higher risk of violence, exploitation and abuse, face barriers to access basic services, and are often excluded from education and live-lihood opportunities.
