The U.S. leads the way among developed countries in helping workers to escape poverty by reducing the number of workers with a disability.
The number of people with disabilities living in the U.K. has declined by one-third since 2000, while Canada has reduced its number of disabled workers by nearly 40 percent, according to the UNAIDS.
But the number has declined in the rest of the world, according the World Bank.
A 2013 report by the World Economic Forum said that in many countries, such as India, China and Russia, there is no evidence that countries have made progress in addressing the problem.
In addition, some countries, including South Korea and Mexico, have made significant strides in reducing poverty, but have not been able to fully eliminate it, the report said.
The U.N. agency, which has been working on a report to monitor poverty for more than a decade, has found that more than 40 percent of the U to M population in the world has a disability, with a growing number of them in the developing world, the United Nations said.
The report also noted that there is a growing need to increase the number and distribution of workers who are disabled.
More than half of the disabled in developing countries are women, and women are twice as likely to be living in poverty as men.
About two-thirds of disabled people in the United States live in households with a disabled adult.
According to the report, disability is the fifth leading cause of death for people in developing nations.
