Population affected by disabilities/rural and migrant health
In contrast, the social construct definition views disability more broadly as a socially-constructed phenomenon shaped by environmental factors such as access to appropriate healthcare, education, and employment opportunities. It sees disabilities not as inherent traits but rather something that can be overcome through proper support services and other accommodations.
Moreover, this perspective is centered around empowering individuals with disabilities in order to allow them equal access to all areas of life instead of treating them solely as patients who need to be “fixed”. By recognizing their potential and talents while also providing them with tools they need to succeed, this approach can help break down any barriers they may face in society thereby creating an inclusive environment for everyone regardless of ability or background.
