Disability and integration: Gambian experience

Author(s): Yahya Muhammed Bah

Stigma towards those with disabilities was perceived as common and more community education on the medical causes of disabilities is needed. Full integration surfaced as fundamental and to achieve this, more support is needed, including both concrete supplies as well as training.
