Disabled people continue to comprise the poorest and worst-served group in the world.
Clearly, the greater the level of general poverty in any community the worse the conditions are for the disabled people who live there. Or to put it another way; disabled people in the poorest communities are the most disadvantaged people on our planet.
We believe that the desperate inequalities that exist for disabled people are uncivilised and preventable. To address these inequalities improves all of us who take part.
