Policy brief: Promoting inclusive education for girls and boys with disabilities in West and Central Africa

Girls and boys with disabilities in West and Central Africa have the same rights to quality inclusive education as all children. This should enable them to participate actively and meaningfully in learning and society. However, at present, these children are largely excluded from education and learning. The current global COVID-19 pandemic is compounding inequalities, exclusion and marginalization as children with disabilities face major hurdles to home learning and to returning to schools as they reopen.
