Up to 14 million older people with disabilities may be affected by humanitarian disasters. These people are among those most at risk, yet little is known about their particular experiences. Their rights and needs are widely overlooked in humanitarian response. The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of older people with disabilities across a range of humanitarian settings.
