Summary

Development for All: Towards a disability-inclusive Australian aid program 2009-2014', ensures that people with disability are included and supported in improving their quality of life through all aspects of the aid program.

Description

'Development for All: Towards a disability-inclusive Australian aid program 2009-2014' sets out practical approaches to guide the Australian aid program in meeting the needs and priorities of people with disability.

In preparing the strategy, consultations were conducted in 20 developing countries involving people with disabilities, their families and caregivers, government representatives, non government organisations, and service providers. Almost 500 written submissions were received in the process.

The strategy is aligned with the Australian Government's national social inclusion agenda and reflects the commitment to extending the benefits of development to all and to promoting the dignity and well-being of people with disability.

In June 2011, 'enhancing the lives of people with disabilities' was highlighted as one of ten development objectives in Australia's aid policy.
