dc.description.abstractThe available evidence on disability in North Africa suggests that people with disabilities are doing less well in comparison to people without disabilities because of factors including marginalisation, stigma, lack of awareness of disability prevalence, lack of comprehensive protection and enforcement of the rights of people with disabilities, and inaccessible environments, services and workplaces. In response a variety of local, national, regional and international organisations are working to improve the situation for people with disabilities across Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia, and to ensure that their rights and needs are met. This organisational mapping of international, regional and national organisations working on disability in North Africa is based on an extensive online search effort. However, due to the restricted time of 5 days, this mapping is not exhaustive. Where possible, links to webpages, Facebook pages and email addresses and other contact details of organisations have been included.en
