Advocacy Fact Sheet on Global Disability Summit

Why is it important?

The Summit is important because Governments and Funders make commitments about their work on disability inclusive development.

This means that they commit to include disability issues when making plans to address poverty, discrimination and injustice in their countries.

We must make sure the voices of persons with intellectual disabilities and their families are included during the GDS.
