The COVID-19 pandemic represents a human crisis of unprecedented scale. It is seriously affecting the very poorest, particularly persons with disabilities, who are being disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
In Bangladesh, UNDP has been working with the government to ensure that no one is left behind in COVID-19 response and recovery by prioritising disability as a key agenda across its approaches and interventions in Cox’s Bazar.
This video outlines the different ways UNDP and the government are reaching people with disabilities, and highlights the positive impact it is having on people’s lives.
