Over two years, Sightsavers in Pakistan worked with strategic stakeholders and national partners to develop a voluntary national review report that focused on disability.
The petition is part of Sightsavers’ Equal World campaign, and calls on the government of Kenya, the United Nations and its member states to uphold the rights of people with disabilities.
It is estimated that there are over 134,600 people with albinism living in Malawi, many of whom face deep-seated discrimination.
Dominic, who is Sightsavers’ Director of Policy and Programme Strategy, is recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for his services to people with disabilities.
Sightsavers hosted a workshop focusing on practical approaches to disability inclusion, where participants generated ideas to make sure healthcare is as inclusive as possible.
