A team of researchers from Australia and Papua New Guinea have started an innovative study of children with disability in the Pacific.

The project team, led by Deakin University and Save the Children, aims to give children with disability a voice - to find out how they view the world, their daily experiences and how they see the future. The project will focus on Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea, and the information will shared with regional institutions and stake-holders.
