This platform is the first of its kind in the Arab region. It aims to provide persons with disabilities, their families and caregivers as well as organisations, researchers and academic institutions various kinds of information related to disability. Additionally, the platform will assist in informing research to make the Arab world more accessible and inclusive.
Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.
