About this event

feb friday session

Nearly 90 million people in the developing world are physically disabled. Their physical condition is a barrier to access education or employment giving them little to no chance of sustaining decent livelihoods, leading to the high prevalence of social exclusion and long-term poverty.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (‘ICRC’) in partnership with KOIS INVEST, a pioneering firm in structuring innovative impact finance mechanisms, is launching a development impact bond aiming to significantly increase the scale and the social impact of socially inclusive physical rehabilitation services across the developing world.

Building upon its 35- year track record in managing physical rehabilitation operations in difficult geopolitical and socio-economic contexts, the ICRC is the best-positioned organization to take the lead in bridging the developing world’s physical rehabilitation gap.
