Disability in Syria

Published on 8 March 2017

This rapid review is based on 5 days of desk-based research. It is designed to provide a brief overview of the key issues, and a summary of pertinent evidence found within the time permitted.

The literature was identified using two methods. Firstly, a number of experts were identified and contacted. They were asked to provide comments, references and information relevant to this query. Their comments are listed under the ‘Comments from Experts’ section. Secondly, a non-systematic internet based search was undertaken to find evidence on disability in Syria.
