The members of the Global Action on Disability (GLAD) network are international stakeholders (bilateral and multilateral donors and agencies, the private sector, foundations and others) contributing resources to enhance the inclusion of persons with disabilities in international development and humanitarian action. Resources are primarily financial, but may also include technical expertise, provided internationally, either directly or through a partnership, to support disability inclusion in developing countries.
