Why Make the Right Real!?

There are some 650 million persons with disabilities in the Asia-Pacific region, the majority of whom live in poverty. Many governments that have ratified have yet to fully harmonize their domestic legislation with the CRPD. It is time for all of us to support efforts to ensure equal rights and opportunities for all persons with disabilities.
