Secretary-General's remarks to the Global Disability Summit [as delivered]

Excellencies, Distinguished delegates, Dear friends,
It is my pleasure to join you for the opening of the second Global Disability Summit.
My thanks to the International Disability Alliance and the Governments of Norway and Ghana for bringing us together.
We are meeting in the midst of an unprecedented crisis.
COVID-19 intensified glaring inequalities – and produced new threats.
Persons with disabilities are losing their lives at vastly higher rates due to persistent barriers in health systems.
