DISABILITY: ENSURING NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND
Disabled people living in poverty are among the most vulnerable, marginalized, and discriminated against people on earth. Often, they have no access to basic human rights, education, or the opportunity to work. There are approximately 1 billion disabled people In the world according to the World Health Organization, 80% live in developing countries – and around 150 million have very high levels of need. Shockingly small numbers of disabled children go to school leading to low literacy and low employment and, for most disabled people. even basic health services are inaccessible.
Disabled people are frequently discriminated against, stigmatized, and excluded from wider society — even by their own families.
After many years of relentless campaigning, we are now beginning to see the global political will, high profile champions, and relevant policies that are needed to respect the rights of disabled people around the world. ADD International has been at the heart of this global movement, ensuring that the voices of disabled people grow ever louder.
