Source is Handicap International’s online resource centre on disability and inclusion. The latest update includes two new keylists of resources:
Advocacy for inclusion
This key list draws together a selection of advocacy resources that highlight information about how to initiate and manage advocacy campaigns, implement awareness-raising activities, engage in lobbying and/or public relations, and influence specific legislation. The resources feature both mainstream and disability-specific strategies and tools.
Mental health and psychosocial support in emergency settings
Humanitarian crises such as natural disasters and armed conflicts impact the mental health of individuals and their communities. Mental health and psychosocial support have recently become increasingly central components of development and humanitarian programming. This key list gathers introductory information, manuals and guides, specific resources for mental health and psychosocial support in emergency situations.
The following keylist has also recently been updated:
HIV & Aids and disability
This keylist aims to raise awareness on the issue of HIV and AIDS for people with disabilities, providing access to key documents, tools and resources to support development practitioners, service providers, policy makers and people with disabilities.
We welcome your suggestions for resources to include! Please send your comments or suggested additions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
