The Cycle: EXPLAINED
This video features people with disabilities from all corners of the world explaining the cycle of poverty and disability. It shows ways to end the cycle.
Poverty and disability are often linked, creating a cycle that’s hard to escape. Extreme poverty causes disability through factors like lack of access to good nutrition, adequate health care, clean water, or through unsafe working conditions. Disability can contribute to poverty through discrimination and attitudinal barriers. A person with disability is less likely to have access to rehabilitation, education and employment — which could help end the cycle of poverty and disability.
