Australia signed up to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2008. This means Australia has made a commitment to protect and promote our rights.

Every four years, Australia has to report to the United Nations (UN) and be reviewed on what it has achieved.  A committee of independent experts, the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (the Committee) does this review.

The last review was in 2019. You can download the outcomes report from the 2019 review here in Word and PDF formats.
