The current coronavirus knows no boundaries and can affect everyone. Nevertheless, the way people can protect themselves and how they are affected by the effects of the virus varies greatly.
On an international level, current experience shows that persons with disabilities have been forgotten in many countries during this pandemic and that they had to call for attention to be considered.
This crisis exemplifies the shortcomings that exist in health care systems. Good health care is not available for many people, especially not for persons with disabilities – often with serious consequences. Even in rich countries they still experience disadvantages.
By having subscribed to the sustainable development goals (SDGs), the states have committed themselves, in line with SDG 3, to ensure a healthy life for all and to promote everybody’s well-being.
How are persons with disabilities taken into account and how can health care systems change in a more inclusive way within the framework of universal health care so that no one is left behind?
What are the needs of children and women with disabilities or elderly persons and what is already happening to make global health care more inclusive?
Which requirements arise for a more inclusive implementation of SDG 3? These are questions that will be discussed and debated during the conference.
