Join our Equal World disability rights campaign

We all have the right to access education, employment opportunities and health care, and the right to have a say in the decisions that affect our lives. 

But for the world’s 1.2 billion people with disabilities, especially people already marginalised on the grounds of gender, poverty, age or other factors, these rights are often denied because of stigma and discrimination.

The COVID-19 pandemic has only increased existing inequalities.   

You can help change this: join the Equal World campaign and be part of a global movement for disability rights.
