Ending remarks for the course

Provides summary of course

We have now reached the end of our course, Global Health and Disability. We really hope you enjoyed the content and the diversity of resources and the experts you had access to! We’d love to hear from you in the comments below – What has been the highlight of the course for you? What will you take away from the course?

Over the last three weeks, we heard from a wide range of people with disabilities and professionals discussing disability inclusive health in low and middle-income countries. We discussed the best ways to globally define and understand disability, explored different links between health, well-being, and disability, and looked at how access to health and rehabilitation services for people with disabilities can be improved. We have shown why thinking about disability inclusion is important across all areas of international development. Specifically, you looked at the challenges and barriers to accessing health and rehabilitation services and solutions to overcoming these different issues in diverse settings through various case studies.

Together, we reflected on the importance of prioritising disability inclusive health in low and middle-income settings and addressing wider needs of people with disabilities through community-based inclusive development. We would like to thank you all for joining our course and for participating so eagerly in discussions with both our team and your peers. In addition, we would like to thank all the people who contributed to this course and helped to make it a success.

Towards a future where no one is left behind, especially people with disabilities

As discussed throughout the course, it is an exciting era as disability continues to gain momentum rising on the global development agenda. Our hope is that we can all engage in disability inclusive and disability specific health programming, policy and practice while ensuring participation, empowerment, and leadership from people with disabilities across different development and humanitarian settings.
