People living with disabilities face a lot of problems in society. Some of the problems faced are education, access to sports and leisure, accessibility into public buildings, and discrimination among others.

Speaking at the opening, the Secretary General in the Ministry of Social Affairs, Rosalie Aboutou said the promotion of national solidarity through the fight against social exclusion of vulnerable people amongst them disabled people and the taking into consideration of the contribution of disabled people in the policies and development programme is a major preoccupation of government.
The objective of the meeting was for members to finalise the document of the National Policy for the Protection and the Promotion of People with Disabilities as well as its plan of action. As specific objectives the members revisited the document for the promotion and protection of disabled people and its action plan and ensured coherence between the document and the logical framework of action plan for the protection and promotion of people with disabilities. Members listened to presentations on topics such as “The implementation of the recommendations of CONRHA 2015”, “Presentation of the national document for the protection and promotion of disabled people” and “Presentation of the terms of reference” among others. At the end of the session, it was expected that the document and its plan of action will be revisited and consolidated.
