Some facts... There are one billion persons with disabilities, 80% of them living in developing countries, 46% of people aged 60 years and over are people with disabilities, one in five women is likely to experience disability in her life, one in ten children is a child with disability. No matter where and what gender, people with disabilities are among the hardest hit by the pandemic (via).

Persons with Disabilities, increase accessibility, and dismantle legal,
social, economic and other barriers with the active involvement of persons
with disabilities and their representative organizations."
