The Comprehensive Disabled Afghans Programme (CDAP) was a United Nations agency which was run by UNOPS from 1991 to 2004 that rehabilitated over 100,000 Afghan people injured by landmines. The program manager was Peter Colerdge.
The Mine Action Program for Afghanistan estimated that 400,000 people were killed or injured by landmines in Afghanistan between 1990 and 2000. The CDAP reported that over half of the victims were men of working age, between the age of 18 and 40.
Despite a reputation of being unfair to women, the Taliban administrators encouraged women to participate in the CDAP and even allow them to work alongside men.
