Abstract

Disability may lead to the worsening of social and economic well-being particularly in a third world country like Ghana. Persons with disability are more likely to be unemployed and generally earn less even when employed and be very dependent on caregivers. This book is written to provide awareness and advocacy on the plights and needs of caretakers of persons with disability in a third world country.
