Where we campaign

We’re taking action for disability rights in countries around the world from Bangladesh to Zambia.

We take action for disability rights in countries from Bangladesh to Zambia.  

The Equal World campaign has supported efforts to put disability laws and policies into action in Guinea, Bangladesh, Cameroon, India, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone and Uganda. We’ve gone out into remote areas to collect petition signatures with our innovative, award-winning app.

We’ve called for ratification of the African Disability Protocol to tackle issues specific to people living in African countries, and campaigned for ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty to make books and learning materials available in accessible formats.

But our global campaigning doesn’t stop there. In early 2023 we’ll launch a new national disability rights campaign in Bangladesh with the support of our country office team and local disability organisations.
