WHO - Task Force on Disability

Posted 11/10-09 at 13.30

The World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General has established a Task Force on Disability to lead the organization's efforts and acknowledges that the Convention will change the way WHO works. The Task Force, which includes representatives from all levels of the organization, aims to ensure that WHO policies, programmes and projects are designed and implemented taking into account disabled people. During its first year, the Task Force achieved significant results in key areas, including information access, physical access, awareness-raising and technical programmes. A work plan has been drawn up for the second year.
