The World report on disability was launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank in June 2011. This, the first such report, is based on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It makes a major contribution to our understanding of disability and its impact on individuals and society, and it highlights the various barriers that people with disabilities face: attitudinal, physical and financial. The report documents the current situation of people with disabilities, highlighting gaps in knowledge and stressing the need for further research and policy development.
