Welcome to the October newsletter from the International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED). We hope that you had a wonderful summer.
Yesterday, Hannah presented the results of our report “Economic Cost of Exclusion and Gains of Inclusion” at a side-event to Committee of the UNCRPD. We are grateful to CBM for having funded the research and to Diane Mulligan for organising the presentation. Please find our full report: Link here. CBM together with the International Disability Alliance put together on “The Cost of Our Exclusion”: See it here.
It’s the start of the new academic year for us, and we are very pleased to welcome two new doctoral students to our team – Antony Duttine and Mark Spreckley. We’re looking forward to having you on board over the coming years.
Congratulations to ICED member Joerg Weber on his new position at WHO – he will now be sharing his time between ICED and the Disability and Rehabilitation team at WHO working on Community Based Rehabilitation.
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. The url link is: http://disabilitycentre.lshtm.ac.uk/resources/
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.
