Welcome to the November newsletter from the International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED).
We are pleased to announce the publication of our study findings this month on Malnutrition in relation to Childhood Disability in Turkana. This research was undertaken together with the Kenyan Society of the Red Cross, and CBM East Africa Regional Office. See it here.
Hannah Kuper has started a monthly column on disability with the news website SciDev.Net. The first is on ageing and disability. Read the column here.
This month we started our 2014 Seminar series with two seminars on the measurement of disability. Hannah Kuper and Islay Mactaggart presented on “Why to include #disability in your studies and how to do it” and Mitch Loeb and Jennifer Madans presented on “The Globalization of Disability Measurement” (joint with UCL). The audio and presentations of both talks are now available on our website. See it here.
We are also applauding the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine this month, which has been ranked in the top 3 best global universities for social sciences and public health: See it here.
We are making every effort to make all our research findings widely available, and have launched a new Resource webpage where you can find our key reports and manuals. See it here.
Please share this newsletter with your colleagues and let us know about items you would like included in future issues.
