A new Handicap International study finds that 75% of people with disabilities believe they are excluded from humanitarian responses to emergencies like natural disasters and conflict. According to the study, Disability in Humanitarian Contexts [1][1] http://www.handicap-international.org/fileadmin/2015Disabilityinhumanitariancontext.pdf. The Disability in Humanitarian Contextsreport is based on the results of an online consultation carried out between April and June 2015 targeting people with disabilities, disabled people's organizations (DPOs) and humanitarian organizations. A total of 769 responses were collected worldwide. The report was carried out as a contribution to the World Humanitarian Summit that aims at reforming the global humanitarian system. The final meeting will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, in May 2016.
