January 2015 Newsletter, International Centre for Evidence in Disability

Dear all,

Happy New Year! And welcome to the January newsletter from the International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED).

This month, we are very proud that The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is ranked in the top 10 of all universities in the UK on overall performance, and second (after the Institute for Cancer Research) for impact in the latest Research Excellence Framework results here.

We are also grateful to CBM International for featuring our work as two of their highlights of the 2014, as well as for their continued support of our research. Highlights can be found here.

We had an exciting December disseminating the results of a variety of studies. This included our investigations of disability in Cameroon and India, our research into exclusion from education among children with disabilities in Nepal, and our findings on inclusion of people with disabilities in social protection programmes in Tanzania. Details are given below. For 2015 we will continue these efforts and also include a greater focus on assessing the impact of rehabilitation, and more activities around hearing impairment.

Please share this newsletter with your colleagues and let us know about items you would like included in future issues.

You can also now follow us on Twitter @ICED_LSHTM.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year.

Best wishes,

Hannah Kuper and Allen Foster
