The International Disability Alliance

We are united for the rights of persons with disabilities on the world stage.

IDA is an alliance of eight global and six regional organisations of persons with disabilities. We advocate at the UN for a more inclusive global environment for persons with disabilities and their organisations. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is our touchstone. We are invested in ensuring that the 2030 Agenda and the Sustianable Development Goals are inclusive and in line with CRPD. We support organisations of persons with disabilities worlwide to take part in UN and international human rights processes, and use international accountability mechanisms.
