What’s disability to me? Faustina’s story.

The World Report on Disability is a major publication from the World Health Organization and World Bank, to be launched on 9 June 2011 in Geneva. The Report explores current evidence about disability, identifies needs, and highlights what works to improve the lives of people with disabilities in areas including health, rehabilitation, support, environments, education and employment.

We want to hear from people with disabilities about what can be done to overcome barriers to participation in their communities. To start the debate, we asked Faustina Urassa, a woman with disabilities from Tanzania, “What’s disability to you?”

  2. Faustina, your video touches my heart. Good that your disability can be seen. However, my disabiliy cannot be seen if you see me standing tall, unless I begin to talk about.
