Why do we need evidence on disability?


In this step, Professor Hannah Kuper will describe why it is important to collect evidence on disability. Professor Kuper will describe three key areas where evidence can be used – in advocacy, to plan interventions, and to see whether interventions are effective. You will hear about the landmark report The World Report on Disability (2011) which drew together a lot of existing evidence from the field, and highlighted a range of existing gaps.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the presentation. Did anything surprise you?
