New research throws spotlight on positive practices and ongoing gaps to meet the needs of 6.7 million displaced people with disabilities
The World Health Organization reports that rates of violence are 4-10 times greater among persons with disabilities than non-disabled persons.

This report synthesizes findings and recommendations from the multiyear (2008–2011), multicountry Displaced Youth Initiative, offering guidance on how to enhance nonformal education and livelihoods development opportunities for displaced youth.
