Around the world, there are a billion people with disabilities.
The vast majority – 800 million – live in low and middle income countries. More than half are women.
Many people with disabilities are denied access to their basic human rights – to education, health care, employment and political participation – because of stigma and discrimination.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put these rights under greater threat than ever. But you can take action to change this.
Join our Equal World campaign and be part of a global movement for disability rights.
