Report: EU countries fail to reduce poverty of persons with disabilities
Today we launched the fourth edition of our Human Rights Report which looks at poverty and social exclusion of persons with disabilities in the EU.
We found that 28.7% of persons with disabilities living in the EU are at risk of poverty. This number will likely grow in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. It highlights how EU countries have largely failed at reducing poverty faced by persons with disabilities, especially in the wake of the financial crisis.
