Sociatal Stigima And Social - Economic Status Of People With Physical Disabilities In Uganda. A Case Of Makindye Division Kampala City

ABSTRACT

This was a descriptive co- relational study carried out in Makindye, Kampala District. The

aim of the study was to assess the community’s stigma and practices towards persons with

physical disabilities. To help with this appraisal, a total of 100 non-disabled respondents

aged between 10-65 years were interviewed using simple random sampling, was used to

decide locations and cluster sampling used for t he households.

Almost half of the respondents had relatives, friends with disabilities and three quarter

indicated that some intervention (like vocational training and equipping them with special

skills) should be availed to persons with disabilities. Three fifihs (3/5) disagreed that there

was equalization of opportunities to all members of the society’s; a fact reflected by nearly

all of those interviewed stating no special institutions exist in the area to cater for the needs

of persons with physical disabilities.

It is therefore recommended that further sensitization and mobilization be community to be

stepped up to harness the knowledge and attitude they possess so that they can be reflected in their practices
