We want to see disability rights respected across Africa. 

80 million people living in Africa have a disability and many of them face stigma, discrimination and the denial of their human rights. By ratifying the African Disability Protocol (ADP), African governments are demonstrating their commitment to promote and protect the rights of people with disabilities.

Watch our video below to find out more about the African Disability Protocol.

Accessibility tips

Get the biggest reach possible

  1. Use Twitter’s descriptive text functionality to describe images for people who are visually impaired.
  2. Keep links in full rather than scrambling them with a link shortener, so that users know where they are being directed to.
  3. If using video content with audio, add subtitles so that the video can be understood without sound.
