Disability is a facet of human life over which mankind has very little control. However, one can make efforts to lessen the burden experienced by the disabled individuals through provision of facilities aimed at reducing the impact of disability and also to sensitize the society.
World Report on Disability (2011) by the WHO and World Bank, states that more than one billion people have some form of disability, corresponding to about 15.3% of global population.
