    Abstract An estimated 15 percent of the world’s population lives with disabilities. Of these 1 billion people, 80 percent live in developing countries, according to 2011 World Health Organization data. The United Nations Convention on the Right of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was adopted at the UN General Assembly in 2006 to protect and promote the rights of persons with disabilities. Ratified by 141 countries to date, the CRPD states that “persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others”.
