Including children with disabilities in humanitarian action (Microsite)

UNICEF has developed guidance to help make sure that children and adolescents with disabilities are included in all stages of humanitarian action – from preparing for emergencies to recovering from them.

Including Children with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action consists of six booklets full of practical actions and tips. The booklets cover:

* general guidance;
* nutrition;
* health and HIV/AIDS;
* water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH);
* child protection;
* education.

In addition to the PDF versions in English, Arabic and French, the guidance is also available in a range of accessible formats, including EPUB, a Braille-ready file and accessible HTML formats. These alternative formats provide greater accessibility and a rich reading experience to persons with disabilities.

The guidance was developed in collaboration with Humanity & Inclusion (also known as Handicap International).
