  4. Breaking the vicious circle of disability and extreme poverty

    17 October 2014, ILO

    Observed on 17 October each year, the day aims to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution worldwide. People with disabilities who make up some 1 billion of the world’s population are at greater risk of poverty due to discrimination and barriers to participation in all spheres of society that can help them escape poverty and break down prejudices. Inclusion in all development activities is critical to breaking the cycle of poverty and disability.
