Icon Our WorkSocial protection and disability in Mauritius

This working paper, focusing on Mauritius, continues a series of publications that identify good practice in enabling the inclusion of people with disabilities in social protection systems and programmes.

It finds that Mauritius has a comprehensive and relatively mature social protection system, and has taken early steps to implement an inclusive, lifecycle approach for certain categories, including persons with disabilities. However, there are still significant gaps in the income support provided to persons with disabilities, as well as a dearth of research into disability issues in Mauritius.

This paper is one of seven country case studies produced as part of the former DFID-financed study Leaving no-one behind: How social protection can help people with disabilities move out of extreme poverty. Read the paper at the link below.
