What does disability mean: personal perspectives

Contextualises what disability means to individuals through personal experiences

Our next activity this week focuses on explaining how disability is understood in a global health framework.

In this first step, we will hear from a range of persons with disabilities discussing what having a disability means to them personally.

Myroslava, Deus, Kim, Rida, Richard, Gadija and Brandon will all share their thoughts with you. We hope you enjoy listening to them. Don’t forget that you can respond in the comments section below if you want to share your own perspectives or thoughts after hearing their answers.
