Schlüsselbotschaften

Wie kann die Schweiz die Rechte von Menschen mit Behinderungen im Globalen Süden sicherstellen?

1

Ohne Richtlinien keine Priorität. Die Schweiz braucht Richtlinien, um die Inklusion von Menschen mit Behinderungen in ihrer internationalen Zusammenarbeit zu steuern. Die derzeitigen Bemühungen zur Inklusion von Menschen mit Behinderungen sind zu wenig umfassend, ad hoc und meist segregierend.

2

Nichts über uns ohne uns! Die Schweiz muss die volle und aktive Partizipation von Menschen mit Behinderungen auch in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit sicherstellen. Sie muss Massnahmen treffen, die die Teilnahme von Menschen mit Behinderungen ermöglichen.

3

Was nicht gezählt wird, zählt auch nicht. Die Schweiz hat sich verpflichtet, bei der Datenerhebung eine Vorreiterrolle einzunehmen, aber sie erhebt in ihren internationalen Programmen nicht systematisch und aufgeschlüsselt Daten zu Menschen mit Behinderungen.

4

In humanitären Krisen niemanden zurücklassen. Menschen mit Behinderungen sind in humanitären Krisen überdurchschnittlich stark betroffen. Die Schweiz hat sich verpflichtet, ihre humanitäre Hilfe inklusiv zu gestalten. Es ist aber nicht klar, wie sie ihren Verpflichtungen nachkommt.

5

Ohne Budget keine Fortschritte. Die Schweiz muss für die Inklusion von Menschen mit Behinderungen in ihrer internationalen Zusammenarbeit finanzielle Mittel bereitstellen und sich verpflichten, keine Programme und Dienstleistungen zu finanzieren, die Menschen mit Behinderungen ausgrenzen.

CBM Switzerland recently launched a Factsheet on CRPD implementation in SWITZERLAND, with a focus on disability inclusiveness of development and humanitarian aid. The Factsheet was written by Polly Meeks, independent consultant. The Factsheet covers areas related to disability inclusion in Switzerland’s international cooperation, including strategy and leadership, engagement with organisations of persons with disabilities, internal capacity, management and reporting, and spending. It also looks at CRPD implementation within Switzerland as well as the coherence between domestic and international CRPD implementation.

Podcast-Serie inklusive Entwicklung

Von Chantal Baumgarten | 2 September 2021 | 0 Kommentare

CBM Switzerland is pleased to announce the launch of a podcast series on disability inclusive development, hosted by the Medicus Mundi Health for All Podcast. The series portrays six people working in the field of disability inclusion. They address topics ranging from research and evidence in disability – to access to healthcare and violence against women and girls with disabilities – to digital inclusion. Every two weeks a new Episode is released between the months of September and October 2021.

The first episode features Hannah Kuper, Director of the International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who speaks about the importance of data and research on disability. Disability affects 1 billion people worldwide, 80% of whom live in low- and middle-income countries. Data is scarce but has improved greatly in recent years. Yet people with disabilities lack access to health care, are more likely to be poor and more likely to be discriminated against. They often have a higher need for health care, but also more difficulties in accessing the relevant services. Systematic data collection and analysis is crucial to ensure that people with disabilities have equal access to all services. “Nothing About Us Without Us!” is as crucial in research as in other project development phases for people with disability.

You can listen to the Podcast on the Medicus Mundi website, Spotify, Apple Podcast, You Tube or Deezer. A written transcript of each episode is also provided.
