55th Session of the Human Rights Council, South Africa’s Statement High-Level Mainstreaming Panel, Harnessing multilateral efforts to embed, amplify and realise the rights of persons with disabilities, with a focus on full and effective participation and inclusion in society, 26 February 2024, Geneva

Let me extend my appreciation to the members of the panel for their rich and informative presentations. We welcome the proposals for the strengthened implementation of the inclusion strategy and promotion of the human rights of persons with disabilities in the UN system. We are reminded that a network of services is required to enable persons with disabilities to carry out daily tasks and participate fully in their communities.
