This year, World Wide Generation is spotlighting people living with disabilities. Accounting for 15% of the global population, they are the world’s largest minority group. Through medical advances, the ageing process and population growth, this estimated figure of 1 billion is increasing. As we focus on reducing inequalities in our societies - and between countries - it’s crucial that we meet the individual rights of people with disabilities. Above all, people who have disabilities should be celebrated and valued for who they are.
