GLAD Network 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM 2022)

From 2 to 4 November 2022, the GLAD Network held its 6th Annual General Meeting in Washington DC. More than 100 representatives of Governments, UN Agencies, development banks, organizations of persons with disabilities, and foundations from around the world participated in the 3-day dialogues, presentations, small group exchanges, and collaborations held in person for the first time after the COVID19 Pandemic. The Government of the United States (US State Department and USAID), and the International Disability Alliance (IDA) co-chaired the meeting.

About GLAD

The Global Action on Disability Network is a coordination body of bilateral and multilateral donors and agencies, public and private foundations as well as key coalitions of the disability movement with a common interest in achieving inclusive international development and humanitarian action.

The history of GLAD is a testament of the power of coalition: What seemed impossible for states or donors unilaterally has become possible through collaborative decision making and effective peer learning. 

GLAD's work is guided by its Strategic Plan, which is produced every 3 years to indicate the network's priorities, objectives and how to get there.  


Since the outbreak of COVID 19, GLAD members have been at the forefront of international efforts to ensure that persons with disabilities aren't left behind in global responses and recovery.
