Disability prevalence is growing world-wide, due to ageing populations, the increase in chronic conditions, accidents, violence and disasters.

To respond to these growing needs, in particular in less-resourced countries, we developed a 5-year strategy and business plan with the objective of expanding our activities and impact. With this plan, we hope to change the lives of nearly 350’000 persons with disabilities, across continents. We also aim to increase our support to the Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies in answering the needs of persons with disabilities in their home countries.

The World Health Organization (WHO) global disability action plan 2014-2021 is a significant step towards achieving health and well-being and human rights for people with disabilities.

Thanks to rehabilitation services and assistive devices, MoveAbility enables people with disabilities to be more independent and achieve social inclusion.
