Disability stigma - a systematic review

25 August, 2021

The message below is forwarded from the CORE group on social and behaviour change.


Following on from the working group yesterday, here is the link for Sightsavers systematic review on disability related stigma and discrimination. There are recommendations about the use of SBC frameworks and formative analysis to understand the contextual drivers, facilitators and manifestations of stigma, paying special attention to negative behaviours, social norms and intersectionality.

Comment (NPW): Disability related stigma and discrimination are important aspects of the HIFA remit and are closely related to lack of public understanding (often extending into lack of understanding among friontline health workers).
