Disability and Development
People with disabilities account for approximately 15% of the world population, i.e. more than one billion people.

80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries.

There is a strong link between disability and poverty, disability being both a cause and a consequence of poverty: poor people are more likely to become disabled, and people with disabilities are among the poorest.
