Upcoming seminar: The Globalisation of Disability Measurement

2 October 2014

Come along to the next seminar in our Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre’s global disability research seminar series, jointly organised with the Institute for Global Health and funded by UCL Futures.

There are very few reliable statistics on disability. We don’t know for sure, for example, how many disabled children are out of school, or how many disabled adults are out of work.

Next year this may start to change, with the promise of a ‘data revolution’ to accompany the new Sustainable Development Goals that will be agreed at the UN in 2015.

At this seminar, Mitchell Loeb and Dr Jennifer Madans from the US National Centre for Health Statistics will discuss the disability data needed to measure progress towards the goals and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

  • Topic: The Globalisation of Disability Measurement
  • Speakers: Mitchell Loeb, health scientist, and Dr Jennifer Madans, associate director for science, National Centre for Health Statistics
  • Date: 24 October 2014
  • Time: 4pm – 6pm (followed by a drinks reception)
  • Venue: Wilkins Garden Room, Main Campus, UCL

(Organised with the International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.)

The event is free but you’ll need to register your attendance.
