Ensuring access to services and assistance for all vulnerable people, including people living with disabilities, is central to DFID’s approach. UK aid is supporting targeted assistance for disabled people, including outreach services providing cooked food, and cash or vouchers for essential purchases. UK assistance is supporting the provision of disabled-access emergency latrines to an estimated 70,000 people. Reducing distances to service points, increasing access into the camps, strengthening referral systems, and increasing access to information as the response continues to scale up will also support the disabled population.
