Setting the Scene

The assumption of the International Year was that one person in ten throughout the world suffered from some degree of disability. This assumption was based on a 1968 estimate by Rehabilitation International that the number of disabled people in the world was 450 million, increasing by some 3 million annually. While it is not possible to verify this figure, it is significant that it was not seriously challenged during the Year.
