Introduction: Limited evidence exists on migrants with disability. A comprehensive assessment is mandatory required to organize specific services within the community and reception centers. The present study explores needs of refugees and asylum seeker within a community-based inclusive development framework. Methods: To interview migrants, in this study we used the Community-Based Rehabilitation Indicators (CBR-Is) developed by the World Health Organization. Results: The sample consisted of 41 people with disability and 59 without disability. Sample was homogeneous for gender and age. Our findings reveal how migrants with disability experienced poor outcomes in each domain of CBR-Is, namely health, education, livelihood, social end empowerment. Conclusion: Differences between migrants with and without disabilities have some distinctive features. However, both groups are influenced by the social determinants of health: in addition to health issues, challenges in social life, livelihood and empowerment also clearly emerge. Different stakeholders are invited to promote inclusive communities, facilitating access to social and health services.

Abstract

Introduction: Limited evidence exists on migrants with disability. A comprehensive assessment is mandatory required to organize specific services within the community and reception centers. The present study explores needs of refugees and asylum seeker within a community-based inclusive development framework. Methods: To interview migrants, in this study we used the Community-Based Rehabilitation Indicators (CBR-Is) developed by the World Health Organization. Results: The sample consisted of 41 people with disability and 59 without disability. Sample was homogeneous for gender and age. Our findings reveal how migrants with disability experienced poor outcomes in each domain of CBR-Is, namely health, education, livelihood, social end empowerment. Conclusion: Differences between migrants with and without disabilities have some distinctive features. However, both groups are influenced by the social determinants of health: in addition to health issues, challenges in social life, livelihood and empowerment also clearly emerge. Different stakeholders are invited to promote inclusive communities, facilitating access to social and health services.
