"Disability is not inability" says UN chiefListen /
World leaders on Monday met to discuss the inclusion of people with disabilities in sustainable development.
It is the first time that the UN General Assembly is holding a High-Level Meeting on Disabilities and Development.
World leaders are expected to adopt a document, which, among other things, recognizes disability as an important human rights issue.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), one billion people live with a disability, or one in seven persons in the world has a disability.
