Nearly all the countries in the world have promised to radically improve the state of our planet and the lives of its citizens by 2030.
They’ve committed themselves to a wide range of life-changing goals, which include ending extreme hunger and poverty, giving people better health and education, achieving equality for women and girls, and delivering greater fairness in the way the world economy works.
We’re working towards a world where everyone has access to health care (Goals 1 and 3); where there’s no gender or disability discrimination (Goals 5, 10 and 16); where neglected tropical diseases have been eliminated (Goals 3 and 6); and where every child can access education (Goal 4).
We’re aiming for a world where no one is left behind (Goals 4, 8, 11 and 16).
We work in partnership (Goal 17) with local, national and international organisations to bring about change: from small self-help groups set up by and for people with disabilities, to government departments in the UK and developing countries, to multilaterals like the World Bank and funders like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Our Equal World campaign calls for the UN and its member states to uphold disability rights. Join us!
We have ambitious plans to eliminate trachoma, river blindness and other neglected tropical diseases.
We work on making health care, education and employment opportunities available to everyone.
