Measuring impairments


In this step, Dr Islay Mactaggart will introduce how we can measure impairments that cause disability. The step focusses on measurement of impairments as described in Article 1 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: physical, mental, intellectual and sensory impairments (which means impairments in vision or hearing).

Dr. Mactaggart is an Assistant Professor in Disability and Global Health at the International Centre for Evidence in Disability and the International Centre for Eye Health at LSHTM.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the presentation. Please add your comments below!
