Introduction

On Tuesday 24th July 2018, a Global Disability Summit is taking place in the UK. The Global Disability Summit is all about getting global leaders to commit to actions that they will take to improve the lives of persons with disabilities around the world. The Global Disability Summit is being hosted by the UK Government Department for International Development, International Disability Alliance and the Government of Kenya.
