Video message by ILO Director-General, Guy Ryder

"A disability-inclusive response means a better response for us all."

ILO Director-General, Guy Ryder, explains that many persons with disabilities come into the COVID-19 crisis already facing significant exclusion in all areas of the world of work. The pandemic and resulting economic shocks increase the vulnerability of persons with disabilities to further inequalities. The new ILO policy brief points out what needs to be done to make the socio-economic response inclusive of persons with disabilities and also addresses issues related to containment measures and the long-term recovery.
