Disability Rights Advocacy Center (DRAC)

Disability is very common worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that about 1 billion people live with disability worldwide, with about 75% living in the developing countries. In Nigeria, WHO estimates put the number of people with disability at 28 million or approximately 15% of the country’s population.

Disability is both a cause and a consequence of poverty. There is a strong relationship between disability and poverty with a cyclical tendency – poverty makes people more vulnerable to disability and disability reinforces and deepens poverty. Disability is an important factor, along with gender, race, ethnicity, etc that interact to impoverish people and keep them poor.

People with disabilities (PWDs) are often excluded from the mainstream of the society and hence, may not contribute to the development of the society at all or optimally. It is increasingly being recognized that bringing people with disabilities into the development mainstream will have a significant effect in any plan to cut poverty in the country.
