LNOB Kenya Report & Policy Briefs: Disability Inclusion in Four Counties of Kenya

From the Executive Summary:

This report presents the findings of a Disability Inclusion Research whose precursor was a Desktop Review conducted in February 2021. The research was commissioned by the Kenya ‘Leave No One Behind’ Consortia Partners and conducted in four counties of Kenya (Siaya, Taita Taveta, Makueni and Embu) in February/March 2021. The review is a systematic critique that sought to gain a deeper understanding of the current situation regarding the drivers and level of marginalization among persons with disability, women and youth at legal and policy level, programmes and in county processes.
