Based on the definition from the CRPD (United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities), disabled people are individuals with long-term physical, language, hearing, mental, intellectual, or multiple impairments. These impairments may cause various obstacles and hinder these people from fully participating in daily activities in society on an equal basis to their more abled peers.
It was estimated that at least 15 % (over a billion) of our world’s population has at least one form of disability, according to the disability review report from the World Health Organization. In the 1970s, the suggested figure for disabled people was 10 %. This percentage has increased over time due to an ageing human population, technological advances to detect disabilities and the quick spread of chronic diseases.
