Disability project?

14 March, 2023

Dear friends and colleagues,

it's been 100 days since the launch of the* WHO Global report on health equity for persons with disabilities


*you can access many advocacy and communication resources on this webpage https://www.who.int/teams/noncommunicable-diseases/sensory-functions-dis...

An estimated 1.3 billion people – or 16% of global population worldwide – experience a significant disability today* and this comes with severe health inequities. I think it might be a good idea to create a HIFA project about disability, or integrate it into existing projects.*

*Kind regards*

*Irene Tosetti*
