Disability - Inclusive development: The international context for UNDP engagement

Inequality and discrimination on the basis of disability impact more than 1 billion people worldwide. Deeply entrenched inequality is reflected in high rates of poverty among people with disabilities who have limited access to decision-making processes and political power, confront major barriers to health care, rehabilitation, education, and employment, and experience high rates of violence and abuse. These can be in turn reinforced by discriminatory laws and institutions and perpetuated by disability-based stigma.
