About Disabilities


Over 1 billion people around the world live with a disability – that’s approximately 15 per cent of our global population.

Disabilities is an umbrella term, covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. Impairment is a problem in body function or structure; an activity limitation is a difficulty encountered by an individual in executing a task or action; while a participation restriction is a problem experienced by an individual in involvement in life situations. Disability is thus not just a health problem. It is a complex phenomenon, reflecting the interaction between features of a person’s body and features of the society in which he or she lives. Overcoming the difficulties faced by people with disabilities requires interventions to remove environmental and social barriers.”

1/2 of people with disabilities cannot afford healthcare. They are 50% more likely to suffer catastrophic health expenditure. The out-of-pocket health care payments can push a family into poverty. The causes, prevalence and consequences of disability vary throughout the world, based on different socio-economic circumstances and of the different assistances that are made for its well-being by each society.

Rehabilitation and Assistive Devices can enable people with disabilities to be independent


Pakistan & Disabilities


The current population of Pakistan is 217 million which is equivalent to 2.81% of the total world population.

With many factors responsible for the rising numbers of disabled persons, the country witnessed an increasing global commitment in the last decade to bring persons with disabilities into mainstreaming, i.e. into education, employment & training. After ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by Pakistan on 5 July 2011, progress has been seen towards the inclusion of persons with disabilities in education, employment and in wider society; however, much more needs to be done.

For effective planning and policy-making, accuracy of data is crucial and many national and international NGOs have not only stressed upon accuracy of data, but also carried out surveys at their own. The need of research with the help of the medical and scientific community is there to identify causes of various disabilities and make efforts to create awareness in public to adopt practices that help prevent disabilities from happening.
