Two short films on access to healthcare for people with disabilities were recently produced by the World Health Organization (WHO) and a few members of the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) – namely Sightsavers, Humanity and Inclusion, The Liliane Foundation and The Leprosy Mission.
The first film focuses on barriers to healthcare for people with disabilities, while the second is about access to health information and sexual and reproductive health and rights. The videos feature the voices of 14 people with disabilities from India, Kenya, Nigeria and Zambia, and are fully accessible with captions and International Sign interpretation.
The short films were officially presented at a side event of the Conference of State Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities co-hosted by WHO, the International Disability Alliance and the Government of Pakistan.
We hope you will find the short films useful and informative. Please consider sharing them with your networks and on your social media pages to raise awareness for this important issue.
