As WHO defined , Persons with disability include people who are traditionally understood as disabled, such as children born with cerebral palsy, wheelchair users, persons who are blind or deaf or people with intellectual impairments or mental health conditions, and also the wider group of persons who experience difficulties in functioning due to a wide range of conditions such as non-communicable diseases, infectious diseases, neurological disorders, injuries, and those that result from the ageing process. There are more than 1000 million people with disabilities globally, that is about 15% of the world’s population or one in seven people. It noted that an estimated 80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries.-----Jianan LI M.D., the president of International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM)
