Global Forum on Disability

ONE BILLION PEOPLE have disabilities.

800 MILLION are in the Global South.

20% of the 'poorest of the poor' are differently-abled people.

We must address the rights of everyone.

GCAP is proud to be part of the

1st Global Forum on Disability: Voice of our Own.

Event: Addressing the Disability Disconnect

CGCAP is proud to co-sponsor an event organised by Disabled People's International entitled "Eradicating Extreme Poverty: Addressing the Disability Disconnect".

Please join us on Monday 23 September from 11:00 - 12:30 in the Secretariat Building at the UN Headquarters (S-2726+2727).


Governments and individuals alike must focus attention on marginalised communities like people with disabilities, if we are truly going to "Leave No One Behind".
