Contribute to a global repository of evidence on disability!

15% of the world's population has some sort of disability. Yet, key evidence about What Works in disability inclusive development is often inaccessible to policy makers outside of high income settings

We developed the Disability Evidence Portal (DEP) to document, in plain and accessible language, what information exists about best practices for people with disabilities in diverse settings, making this knowledge more actionable for national and local organisations interested in improving outcomes for people with disabilities worldwide.

What we do:

  1. Identify priority questions for evidence synthesis in the field of disability-inclusive development
  2. Collate and synthesise evidence from a variety of rigorous systematic reviews and related literature
  3. Develop and host open-access, easy to read evidence briefs on a dedicated online platform

We are asking individuals from LMICs around the world to take part in developing evidence briefs

Do you have:

  1. Experience with conducting, collating and writing up literature reviews?
  2. Familiarity with data extraction and synthesis of systematic reviews on Excel
  3. Approximately 5 days of your time to dedicate to the activity?

We will be commissioning up to 9 individuals or small teams in LMICs to develop evidence briefs for the portal. Each selected writer or team will be paid GBP 500 upon completion.
