Promoting Global Equity in Supports and Services for Childhood Developmental Disability
There has been a recent shift in the focus of health systems from the “surviving” focus of the UN Millennium Development Goals to an overt focus on “thriving” in the Sustainable Development Goals. This shift has increased attention to the need for supports and services for children with developmental disabilities. This webinar will describe global efforts underway to promote global equity in the field of childhood developmental disabilities. A keynote presentation will describe a joint UNICEF/WHO effort to develop a comprehensive approach to provide care and support for young children with developmental delays and disabilities, and their families. Three panel discussions, that include self-advocates, will then focus on 3 specific developmental disabilities: cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, hearing loss, and outline practices to ensure equitable access to high quality, person/family-centered supports that improve the quality of life for individuals with disability.
