Leaders from across the Australian international development and disability sectors have rallied behind the Joint Call for Action on Disability Equity, calling for the forthcoming International Disability Equity and Rights strategy (IDEARS) to be ambitious, accountable and resourced. The Joint Call is now supported by 42 organisations across Australia’s international development and disability sectors, and urges the Australian Government to pledge sustained funding for disability equity and rights within its international development program. This unified stance underscores the critical need for disability equity and rights to be integrated into broader development goals, and for long-term resourcing to ensure that rights are upheld, reflecting a commitment to inclusive and equitable growth worldwide.
