Realizing the Rights of Persons With Disabilities
A brief brochure to introduce the work of UNDP China with regard to protecting, advocating for, and advancing the rights of people with disabilities.
Excerpt: Persons with disabilities are indispensable actors in the achievement of the MDGs and a Xiao Kang society in China. Advancing the rights of the disabled is at the core of UNDP China's work for development with equity. UNDP is proud to be associated with the ongoing efforts of the Chinese Government and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to improve legislation, law enforcement, policies, and practices to support the mainstreaming of people with disabilities into society. In order to strengthen the knowledge base for development in this field, UNDP's experiences of supporting people with disabilities in China are worth sharing.
