This project will conduct sharing circles and focus groups as a strategy to collect qualitative data on people's perceptions on disabilities and make recommendations to address barriers and gaps that may prevent Congolese refugees from seeking disability services. I will share my experiences and lessons learned from the research, focus groups, and overall process with the disability and public health communities.
