This Special Appeal sums up the ICRC's approach to addressing the needs of persons with disabilities, including the social and economic aspects of inclusion and participation, and its funding requirement for related activities in 2016. Previously, related Special Appeals focused on mine action, particularly activities to prevent and mitigate the effects of mines, cluster munitions and explosive remnants of war (ERW). Over the past few years, however, disability inclusion has received increased international attention. Thus, the ICRC has begun to work towards addressing the specific needs of persons with disabilities in a more inclusive and comprehensive manner at the operational and institutional levels. Specifically, the ICRC assists all persons with disabilities by providing physical rehabilitation services, supports services along the rehabilitation chain - from emergency and continuing medical care to physcial rehabilitation and psychological support, mitigates the effects of mines/ERW, and urges States to meet their obligations under international humanitarian law and relevant Conventions, with a focus on encouraging States to accede to/implement the provisions of weapons-related treaties.
