The primary focus of this review was to identify studies that describe the effectiveness of interventions to tackle disability-related stigma and discrimination. The secondary set of objectives focused on understanding the individual, interpersonal, organisational, community and public policy factors that are associated with stigma and discrimination. We sought to identify the various ways in which stigma and discrimination have been reported to manifest, the extent and range of their outcomes on the lives of people affected, and how they may intersect with other individual characteristics and types of stigma. Finally, we sought to identify toolkits and good practice guidelines for addressing stigma and discrimination, as well as validated tolls and metrics for measuring them.
