People with disabilities often lack equal access to necessary services including health care, education, and employment opportunities. There is increasing evidence that people with disabilities experience exclusion from everyday life leading to poor socioeconomic outcomes when compared to people without disabilities, though there is a basic lack of awareness and information on the magnitude of these issues. This report by the World Health Organization (WHO) aims to raise awareness and analyze measures to improve accessibility and equality of opportunities for people with disabilities.
