Young Power in Social Action (YPSA) with the support of ActionAid Bangladesh and Shahrasti Upazila Administration conducted a survey to identify persons with disabilities in Shahrasti Upazila of Chandpur district, Bangladesh. The main goal of this survey was to create an online database of PWD’s to provide a comprehensive picture of disability in a specific area of the country. This survey on disability was carried out not only for research purposes but also to help with the implementation of programs. The first objective is to provide general understanding of the situation of persons with disability, whereas the second aim is to provide insights regarding specific living conditions, the immediate and long-term needs of the persons with disability and the means to implement relevant programs to meet these needs.
