Handicap International encourages the inclusion of disabled people in all areas of activity through a concept called “Community Approaches to Handicap in Development”(CAHD), focusing on the causes of impairment, disability and handicap, and their linkage to able-bodied people. The vision of CAHD is to create social changes that will ensure inclusion as citizens with equal opportunities and full access to participation. Finally, Handicap International looks to championing disabled people's access to basic human rights and the prevention of disability through road safety and public awareness campaigns.
