Published in 2011, the first ever World report on disability, produced jointly by WHO and the World Bank, suggests that more than a billion people in the world today experience disability.
People with disabilities have generally poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities.
An easy read version of the ‘World report on disability’ by the World Health Organisation and the World Bank was published in June 2011.
