“People with disabilities are more likely to live in poverty, and they experience higher rates of violence, neglect and abuse. The pandemic is intensifying these inequalities - and producing new threats. ”
At the launch of their new report, the UN Secretary-General spoke about the importance of guaranteeing equal rights for people with disabilities in, for example, access to care during the pandemic. The report contains, among other things, recommendations on how people with disabilities are included in the work to combat the pandemic that is taking place worldwide.
