Article 9 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is an innovative provision which articulates, for the first time in a UN human rights treaty, a right to accessibility. Article 9(1) requires States Parties to take:
appropriate measures to ensure to persons with disabilities access, on an equal basis with others, to the physical environment, to transportation, to information and communications, including information and communications technologies and systems, and to other facilities and services open or provided to the public, both in urban and in rural areas.
