IDA works across the United Nations to make sure its human rights and sustainable development processes uphold the highest standards of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities - the CRPD. We also support the UN General Assembly, UN Secretariat and UN agencies—such as UNICEF, the World Bank and the World Health Organisation—to help ensure that the human rights of all persons with disabilities are an integral part of their work.

While IDA works to create a more enabling global environment for realising the rigths of persons with disabilities, IDA also works with organisations of persons with disabilities - or 'DPOs' - to utilise this environment and make change directly, from local to global advocacy.

IDA Members work in over 200 countries and territories across the world. IDA works with DPOs to harness international human rights and sustinable development frameworks for their national, regional and global advocacy work.
