Disability and Inclusion Africa: About Us

The Disability and Inclusion Africa project is working to improve understandings of the impact of alternative explanations for disability on disabled people, their communities, advocates and policy makers. 

Alternative explanations for disability may stem from assumptions and misconceptions, traditional beliefs, religious beliefs, medical determinist, supernatural or witchcraft-related beliefs.

Through international dialogue at events in Nigeria, Cameroon, Tanzania, South Africa and the UK, collaborative research, fieldwork, and community engagement, the project aims to bring about a step-change in the ways in which disability is understood by communities, civil society, international development and the academy.
