Social marginalisation

Many people are at risk of being left behind or discriminated against including for reasons of disability, social group, marginalisation (e.g. ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender etc.), and extreme and chronic poverty

Exclusion can be conscious or unconscious. This may result in individuals, households or communities being ‘hidden’ and it is important that programmes and monitoring systems include specific provisions to seek out people who may not otherwise be reached or identified.
