HI has been working in China for more than 20 years. Our objective is to improve the socio-economic inclusion of people with disabilities, especially in rural areas, trough pilot projects run in close cooperation with governmental partners, civil society and associations of people with disabilities.

There are more than 83 million people with disabilities in China (equivalent to the entire population of Germany) and more than 75% of them are living in rural areas. In these areas, access to services for people with disabilities is still challenging as the following facts show:
- Only 33% of people with disabilities needing rehabilitation services receive them;
- Only 20% of people with disabilities needing assistive devices have access to such devices;
- The illiteracy rate of people with disabilities aged 15 or above is more than 40%; As a consequence, the average annual income per person with disabilities is less than half of the average national annual income per person.

We are currently operating in two provinces/regions of China (Beijing, and Yunnan) along with other provinces through our network organization. Our head office is located in Beijing. The ongoing projects of the China programme are Promoting Inclusion through Civil Society Organizations (CSO), Livelihood & Economic Development, Disability Inclusion Development, and Mental Health. We are also expecting to launch an important project on Inclusive Employment. We also advocate for more quality services and better inclusion of persons with disabilities in rural areas via close contacts with different Ministries, the China Disabled Persons’ Federation (CDPF), the media and the academic sector.
