Words are not enough – actions speak louder

One year on from the Global Disability Summit 2022, we urgently call on global governments to uphold disability rights and make their summit commitments a reality

The 2022 Summit was an opportunity to make international development truly inclusive for people with disabilities, particularly women and girls.

But without proper funding or action plans, these commitments mean nothing.

Will you join our call to governments to report on their progress, one year on from the summit, and take action on their commitments?

Add your name now to tell governments – now is the time to take action for disability inclusion.
