Report is collaboration between World Health Organization and World Bank
Disability is a social, political and human rights issue, says Tom Shakespeare, a contributor to the first-ever World Report on Disability.
Shakespeare, a technical officer at the World Health Organization, was at the University of Toronto recently for the Toronto launch of this World Health Organization (WHO) and World Bank report. The WHO, the health agency of the United Nations, focuses on health, rehabilitation and data. However, as Shakespeare noted, disability is far more than just a medical issue.
