In settings where resources are limited, many compromises are made on a daily basis. The short end of the compromise stick always falls on the most vulnerable people. Due to lack of mobility and their visibility, people with disabilities are often denied access to rights such as basic healthcare.
The 67th Session of the World Health Assembly (WHA) took place 19-24 May 2014 at the UN Palais des Nations in Geneva, bringing together Member States and Civil Society Organisations from around the world. Now there is an action plan developed as the outcome of the assembly. The Secretariat welcomes comments on the options proposed. Comments should be sent to the email firstname.lastname@example.org by Close of Business on Tuesday 12th November.
