Publisher: UNHCR Year: 2015 Description:
In accordance with UNHCR policies for working with persons with disabilities (2011), disabled persons should have the same opportunities as any other displaced persons to enjoy the full range of WASH facilities available in a refugee setting in a nondiscriminatory manner. Therefore, UNHCR and WASH actors should ensure that all
WASH infrastructure regardless of its location including toilets, water collection points, bathing, laundering and handwashing facilities, solid waste collection points, waste containers and recycling facilities can be accessed and used comfortably by all in particularly persons with disability and mobility issues, the elderly, pregnant women, and the infirm.
This document has been designed to help UNHCR and WASH actors assess WASH infrastructure for potential access from the individual perspective of each type of vulnerable user in particular persons with disabilities, women, children, and the elderly.
