In June 2019, the United Nations (UN) Secretary General launched the UN Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS), which provides the foundation for sustainable and transformative progress on disability inclusion through all pillars of the UN work. The policy establishes the highest levels of commitment and a vision for the UN system on disability inclusion and enables the UN system to support the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and other instruments such as the Agenda for Humanity, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Through the Strategy, the UN System will systematically embed the rights of persons with disabilities into its work, both externally, through programming, and internally, through its leadership, operation, and organizational culture.
All United Nations Country Teams (UNCT) globally shall implement the UNDIS. The UNCT-Iran has recently established an inter-agency disability inclusion taskforce and conducted a disability inclusion scorecard to measure its performance on the UNDIS implementation. Following the completion of the said scorecard, a 42-activity Action Plan for 2022-2023 has been developed to strengthen mainstreaming of disability inclusion across all areas of the UNCT work, such as programming, procurement and human resources, communications, and advocacy.
