Leave no one behind: adolescents with disabilities in Jordan

22.07.19 | Bodily integrity and freedom from violence | Jordan

Authors

Elizabeth Presler-Marshall Nicola Jones Sarah Baird with Agnieszka Malachowska

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), committed to leaving no one behind, include targets for people with disabilities on access to education (SDG 4), decent work (SDG 8), and reducing inequalities (SDG 10). The GAGE research sample explicitly includes young people with disabilities so that we can help build the evidence base on the hardest-to-reach adolescents. Our findings in Jordan underscore the importance of strengthening outreach to ensure that the needs and capacities of the most vulnerable young people – especially refugees with intersecting vulnerabilities – are recognised and addressed through policy, services and programmes.
