Protections against Severe Disabilities

Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments. A person with disability cannot participate fully and effectively in society on an equal basis with others. In Pakistan, persons with disability including children faces range of attitudinal, physical and systematic barriers when they try to access the health facilities, education, trainings and employment opportunities. Therefore, SPRC aims to look for the actions and interventions, which are required to ensure the access to health facilities, education, training and employment opportunities on an equal basis with others.
