Qatar is taking part in the second Global Disability Summit, which began its work on Wednesday in the presence of 800 personalities from around the world, including state leaders, heads of government, and ministers.
Minister of Social Development and Family HE Maryam bint Ali bin Nasser Al Misnad is leading Qatar’s delegation to the summit.
The Kingdom of Norway, the Republic of Ghana, and the International Disability Alliance are co-hosting the virtual summit.
The first summit, held in London in 2018, sought to shed light on issues of discrimination and social stigma faced by one billion people worldwide with disabilities.
This year’s two-day summit will address a variety of issues and topics with the goal of revitalizing global efforts to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and accelerating efforts to raise global and governmental awareness of this category’s rights.
