USICD is advocating for a permanent Office of International Disability Rights with an Ambassador-level Special Advisor on International Disability Rights with staff and funding


USICD is advocating for a permanent Disability Coordinator, a revised disability inclusion policy that mandates inclusion across all USAID programs and that no funds should be used in any way that segregates people with disabilities.
