With numerous armed conflicts around the world, it is critical for the global community to reaffirm its commitment to leaving no one behind in humanitarian response, including persons with disabilities. Conflicts, emergencies and disasters do not discriminate. Despite this, the literature consistently highlights that those with disabilities, and particularly those with intellectual disabilities and mental health issues, face higher risk and are disproportionately affected.
