In Africa, an estimated 60-80 million people are living with disabilities according to USAID throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and elsewhere, people living with disabilities, including those who were disabled as a result of war and conflict.

Facts on the Disabled in Africa and the Developing World

  • Every day in Africa, many people are disabled by malnutrition and disease, environmental hazards, natural disasters, traffic and industrial accidents, civil conflict and war.
  • According to Rehabilitation International, it is estimated that 350-500 people worldwide become amputees each day due to landmines that they encounter while walking, farming, or playing.
  • The vast majority of Africans with disabilities are excluded from schools and opportunities to work, virtually guaranteeing that they will live out their lives as the poorest of the poor. School enrolment for the disabled is estimated at no more that 5-10 percent.
  • Only 1 percent of disabled women living in developing countries are literate.
  • Disabled people are estimated at 10 percent of the general population, but possibly as high as 20 percent of the poor. As many as 80 percent of working age people with disabilities are unemployed.
  • The social stigma associated with disability results in marginalization and isolation, often leading to begging as the sole means of survival.
  • A consequence of living in poverty with a disability is inadequate access to health services, resulting frequently in serious secondary conditions and general deterioration of the quality of life.
  • The African Union declared 1999-2009 to be the African Decade of Disabled Persons.
