People are often disabled not because of a diagnosable condition, but because they are denied access to education, labor market, public services, etc. This exclusion leads to poverty and, in a vicious cycle, poverty leads to more disability by increasing their vulnerability (malnutrition, disease, etc.). The priorities of the World Bank -embodied in the MDGs- cannot be achieved without incorporating the 10% of the world’s population which is disabled –given the strong two-way link between poverty and disability.
