The “World Report on Disability” (2011) by the World Health Organization and the World Bank outlines the present state of the challenges that people with disabilities face and gives many detailed suggestions directed at governments, the United Nations, and other institutions on how to improve the lives of people with disabilities. The report uses a large number of statistics and data to outline every aspect of the current situation of people with disabilities and each problem they face and uses this information to make recommendations about how to proceed in the future. The World Health Organization and the World Bank created this document in order to make available a complete breakdown of the problems people with disabilities face to governments and other entities and recommend changes that they should make. The report specifically addresses each of its possible audiences, outlining specific steps they can take in relation to disability and thus comprehensively informs entities such as governments or parents of people with disabilities about disabilities and their responsibility to act.
