"ADD International was set up in 1985 by Chris Underhill, who had been inspired by the work of the disability movement in Zimbabwe, where organised self advocacy by disabled people’s organisations was having an impact on attitudes and policy....

"Since 1985 ADD has gone from strength to strength. Following on from Chris Underhill, Barbara Frost (Chief Executive 1996 - 2005) played a significant role in ADD International's achievements. During this period ADD supported disabled people to lobby and campaign for inclusion in all areas of life (education, work, health services, voting and transport etc). For example, ADD supported disabled people to access the vote, perhaps for the first time, and to take part in election monitoring in Ghana, Bangladesh, Zambia and Cambodia..... and ensured visually impaired people could vote independently in the national elections in Ghana (2004)."
