Disability Inclusion Annual Report 2019

UNRWA currently has up to 5.5 million Palestine refugees registered in all its five fields of operation in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza. Approximately 15 per cent of the global population is living with a disability, which implies that, at least, 839,632 Palestine refugees with disabilities are under UNRWA programmes. However, this figure may go up in humanitarian contexts due to its associated vulnerabilities, as is the case with UNRWA beneficiaries. Disability inclusion is at the heart of UNRWA programmes and services. In fact, persons with disabilities are historically stigmatized and marginalized. This has limited their access to basic services, and participation in the mainstream of life on an equal basis with others. Disability is closely linked to poverty.
