This systematic review by Tripney and colleagues examines the evidence on the effects of interventions to improve the labour market for adults living with disabilities in low- and middle-income countries. The authors find that research in this area has received very little attention. They identify only a limited number of relevant impact evaluations to include in the review, all of which had significant methodological limitations. The available evidence does not allow for definite conclusions on the effects of interventions to support the employment of adults living with physical and/or sensory disabilities. The review highlights the identified gaps and lays out key areas for future research, including high-quality evaluations of relevant legislation and policies, educational and skills development programmes, employer sensitisation and awareness-raising campaigns, and programmes targeting adults with hearing impairments.
