Green slide with LSHTM Event in white text

During this seminar, the speaker will discuss the evidence of disability and multidimensional poverty around the globe. The results use data from more than 40 countries around the globe to analyse if households with a member with disability present higher levels of multidimensional poverty than households without members with disabilities. ​

Attendees will learn about the relationship between disability and multidimensional poverty around the globe. 

The event is open to students, academics, persons with disabilities, NGOs, and those interested in these topics. ​
