Abstract

LONDON—A man with no legs and only one arm and a boy crippled by polio have been instrumental in steering a Red Cross team’s work in Afghanistan. The ICRC’s head of orthopaedics in Kabul, Alberto Cairo (pictured), was invited by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to talk about his experience of 22 years’ work with disabled and war-wounded people. Together with Karl Blanchet of the London School’s International Centre for Evidence on Disability he explained to Peter Goodwin why we should see disabled people as a resource, not a liability.
