Sightsavers Reports

Sightsavers’ disability data disaggregation project

The lack of comparable data on disability remains a critical development issue. Without better, more accurate and comparable data on disability it will not be possible to accurately measure development progress and truly ensure no one is left behind.

These reports share Sightsavers’ experience of collecting disability disaggregated data using the Washington Group Short Set of Questions. Our findings are allowing us to develop an organisational approach to collecting better data on disability and improving the accessibility of our programmes as a result. We are sharing our experiences and encouraging other development actors to collect and disaggregate data to ensure inclusive development is realised in practice. Publication date: August 2017
