People with disabilities need much more support than others in the face of a pandemic as they are a very diverse group. They experience different hardships in accessing information on prevention and risk of infection. Facilities and institutions need to show a humane response in an equitable manner with affirmative action for people with disabilities and this will be more urgent and pressing during and after the pandemic. This is very critical towards achievement of the sustainable development goals and achieving disability inclusive development. This presentation would highlight the approaches towards that end.
