As stated in the “Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030,” there are still many barriers for persons with disabilities in terms of access to health care, education, employment, recreation, as well as in participation in political life, which limit their participation in society on an equal basis with others.
The Covid-19 pandemic has amplified barriers and inequalities (UN Resources on Persons with Disabilities and COVID-19).
