The Permanent Mission of Ecuador in its capacity of Chair of the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the World Health Organization, Office of the United Nations High-Commissioner for Human Rights, and the International Disability Alliance will hold a virtual briefing session to hear from UN disability rights experts, persons with disabilities and their representative organizations and governments on the ongoing health crisis from a disability inclusive perspective. 

This session aims to facilitate a conversation between various stakeholders in order to clearly identify main challenges faced by persons with disabilities with the global pandemic, and also introduce some practical CRPD-compliant solutions and strategies to address those challenges.
