Resumen


Introducción: La pandemia por Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) ha profundizado las desigualdades preexistentes de las personas con discapacidad. Estas personas se encuentran entre los grupos más vulnerables afectados por COVID-19 puesto que son uno de los grupos más excluidos de la sociedad.

Objetivo: Identificar las declaraciones y recomendaciones que las organizaciones supranacionales emitieron para garantizar los derechos de las personas con discapacidad en la actual pandemia.

Materiales y métodos: Se realizó una búsqueda amplia y sistemática, fueron consultadas 20 organizaciones y fueron analizados 58 documentos analizados en esta síntesis rápida.

Resultados: Los documentos encontrados fueron asignados en cuatro categorías dependiendo de su principal enfoque: principio de igualdad y no discriminación (25,8%), derecho al respeto de la dignidad inherente (10,3%), derecho a la accesibilidad (36,2%) y derecho a la salud (27,6%).

Conclusión: Las organizaciones supranacionales hacen un llamado a los gobiernos a garantizar la protección y promoción de los derechos de las personas con discapacidad y a la ejecución de medidas y estrategias razonables que aborden las necesidades especiales de esta población en la actual pandemia.
