Disability is an evolving multidimensional experience that interferes with an individual’s participation in society. Because of physical, attitudinal and system-level barriers, people with disability face challenges accessing health care, education, employment and social services. People with disability also face challenges participating in health promoting behaviours, such as regular physical, social and community activities due to the limited number of inclusive activities, and difficulty accessing facilities and appropriate transport to and from events. Moreover, people with disability may encounter stigmatisation and discrimination, which further contribute to social, economic and health marginalisation.
