Disabilities

A Rights Based Approach


Watch the video Voices of Children - English, French or Spanish

UNICEF promotes the rights of every child everywhere, in everything that it does. Our Equity Strategy emphasises the most disadvantaged excluded children and families and translates this commitment into concrete action. Children with disabilities have the same social needs, interests and rights as any other child. However, largely due to stigma and discrimination, children with disabilities are often denied opportunities for participation and integration.

They are often denied access to cultural or leisure activities or information and support about reproductive health, sexuality, and other areas that are vital for a child’s seamless integration into society and his/her growth and development into adulthood. UNICEF believes that by increasing awareness, engagement and resourcefulness of communities and social service providers and involving children with disabilities in this integrated process can indeed bring about social change.
