Improve standards for persons with disabilities in society
Fijian Prime Minister Hon. Mr. Voreqe Bainimarama in opening the 4th PRCD urged every participant throughout the region to return to their homes with determination to improve the position of persons with disabilities in our societies.
Mr. Bainimarama stressed the importance of realising the rights of persons with disabilities to be asserted into national laws and policies such as reasonable adaptation of buildings, infrastructure, vehicles, working arrangements, rules, pratices or procedures to enable their full participation in society.
Including persons with disabilities in all aspects of life is important in taking action towards building a disability inclusive Pacific.
A disability inclusive Pacific means bringing people with disabilities from the margins to the centre of our national lives. It means implementing programs and providing services that cater the needs of persons with disabilities.
