Disability at a Glance 2015 focuses on barriers to the employment of persons with disabilities in the Asia-Pacific region, and offers solutions to strengthen their employment prospects. Published by United Nations ESCAP in 2016.

Employment is not only the primary means of livelihood generation; it also provides individuals with the purpose and meaning of playing a productive role in society. Equal access to employment is therefore vital, and barriers to work faced by persons with disabilities must be removed. This fifth edition in the Disability at a Glance series offers a regional overview of disability legislation, policies and practices, as well as relevant country-specific information. The information draws on both a targeted disability survey carried out by the ESCAP secretariat, and research undertaken by other organizations and scholars.
