National Disability Prevalence Survey

The National Disability Prevalence Survey which is also called the Model Functioning Survey (NDPS/MFS) is implemented by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in collaboration with the Department of Health (DOH) and the National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA), and with technical assistance provided by the World Health Organization (WHO). The University of the Philippines-Manila also provided significant inputs during the development and the report writing stages. NDPS/MFS is anchored on the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is implemented in consonance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). NDPS/MFS is a general population survey that allows for a direct comparison of the needs and barriers faced by groups with differing levels of disability, including people without disability/disabilities. It adopts the Model Disability Survey (MDS), which was grounded in the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), and defines disability as the outcome of the interaction between a person's health-related status and the physical, human-built, attitudinal and socio-political environment in which the person lives.
