Handicap International is an international organisation specialised in the field of disability.  Non-governmental, non-religious, non-political and non-profit making, it works alongside people with disabilities, whatever the context, offering them assistance and supporting them in their efforts to become self-reliant. Since its creation, the organisation has set up programmes in approximately 60 countries and intervened in many emergency situations
Project background
HI has been operating in Palestine since 1996 and has developed relationship with several disability stakeholders. According to general estimations by WHO, between 7-10% of a given population would have some kind of disability; in the Palestinian Territories, this implies that the figure would be around 270 000 – 390 000 people. Regular assessments were done in order to identify needs of PWDs in oPt.

The findings of the last assessment are described below:
-Lack of information of PwDs on services available and how to access it
-Lack of quality and appropriate assistive devices
-Low quality of rehabilitation services not addressing the users' needs
-Limited accessibility to rehabilitation services for PwDs
-Increased number of PwDs and deterioration of the socio-economical situation in the OPT

Project Specific Objective: Persons with disabilities can access to holistic physical rehabilitation services in the West Bank
-Expected result 1:The physical rehabilitation centres operating in the West Bank deliver holistic services.
-Expected result 2:PwDs are able to obtain a diverse range of adapted to their specific needs and affordable assistive devices (AD's)
-Expected result 3:Accessible transportation options facilitate PwDs' access to rehabilitation services
-Expected result 4 :PwDs, their families and all relevant stakeholders have information about the existing rehabilitation services
The consultant will design a database for the purpose of data entry and processing in close coordination with project team and partner staff. The purpose of this database is to organize and store both qualitative and quantitative data collected from persons with physical impairments.
