According to the World health Organization (WHO), there are currently more than 650 million People with Disabilities (PWD) globally. Their numbers grow daily due to chronic diseases, illness, injuries, violence, and aging. Of further note is the fact that, in general, PDWs have education attainment rates well national averages, while illiteracy among children is well national averages. Overall, there are low incentives to hire PWDs, especially in the private sector, and often income protection and rehabilitation programs are not extended in the degree to which they would meet their needs.
