• Despite Sudan’s ratification of the UNCRPD and development of national strategies and legislation, the rights of children with disabilities remained compromised, and they had limited opportunities  to participate in society and be included with their  peers at school. Therefore in 2014, through joint coordination and implementation, UNICEF, WHO and UNESCO came together to employ a comprehensive approach to reach children with disabilities by engaging with government line ministries, the National Council for Persons with Disabilities, and national DPOs to promote access to inclusive education and health services in Sudanese schools. The UNPRPD project adopted a two-pronged approach focusing on two main activities:  institutional and capacity development of front-line officers including teachers and health workers to enhance their knowledge, skills, awareness and delivery of inclusive services;  provision of inclusive child-friendly learning environments through revision of national school construction standards incorporating accessible guidelines for children with disabilities.
