Abstract

Employment through various productive activities often serves as the basis of livelihood. But when it is destroyed through poor health, the entire web may be damaged. This may result in serious livelihood insecurity. The web of disability, unemployment and livelihood insecurity requires concrete empirical studies for effective policy intervention. The bidirectional link of disability with social exclusion and health impairment serves as the crux of the present paper. The paper highlights the need for social as well as institutional intervention through productive palliative care may help to reverse this negative web with much ease.
