About

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is a legally binding international agreement by countries to help ensure children and adults with disabilities enjoy the same rights as others, and are treated fairly and with dignity.

CRPD works in connection with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Implementing them together enhances the rights accorded to every child, including education and play, health services, equality and non-discrimination
