Representation and Evaluation of Disability in Haiti
The three specific objectives of the population-based survey of disability in Haiti were to:
- Provide statistically reliable data on disability and people with disabilities in Port-auPrince (prevalence, reported causes, profile of people with disabilities identified)
- Provide a snapshot of the situation for people with disabilities and compare it to a control group without disabilities in order to reveal restrictions on participation and barriers that specifically affect the study population (family environment, living standards, education, employment and health)
- Investigate from a qualitative perspective people with disabilities’ difficulties in terms of inclusion, access and social participation. Location The study was carried out in 2012 in 5 districts from the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area: Carrefour, Delmas, Pétionville, Tabarre and Port-au-Prince
