We do not hold specific data on referrals to disability programmes. However, we are committed to ensuring people with disabilities are systematically included in our programme portfolio, and we are asking all our partners to do more to disaggregate data by disability. Examples of programmes we support which directly benefit people with disabilities include:

  • Specialised psychiatric care, protection for children traumatised by violence or conflict, and cash assistance for families with a family member who has mental health issues (delivered through International Medical Corps).
