Summary: 
Over 1 billion persons with disabilities have great potential and the ability to contribute in all aspects of development and society. Yet they have been in more marginalized situations due to historical discriminations and many forms of barriers that prevent their inclusion and participation equally and fully as members of our communities. In facing the current COVID-19 crises, evidence showed already that persons with disabilities are at greater risk and disproportionately affected by the COVID-19.
