Guidance on strengthening disability inclusion in Humanitarian Response Plans

Reaching the people who are most in need of assistance is central to the humanitarian mandate and is reflected in the humanitarian principles of humanity and impartiality. In a humanitarian emergency, people with disabilities are often among those most in need of assistance as they are at heightened risk of violence, exploitation or abuse.  Persons with disabilities also face discrimination due to significant barriers in accessing needed humanitarian assistance.
