Vietnam set to ratify convention on disabled rights

(16:18:20 PM 21/01/2014)
(Tinmoitruong.vn) - Vietnam is striving to perfect its laws and policies to foster the rights of disabled people and plans to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2014.

The information was unveiled in the National Report on Human Rights under the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR).

 

Vietnam earlier signed the CRPD in 2008 and issued the Law on Persons with Disabilities two years later.

 

From 2010-2013, a total of 13 regulations on the rights of disabled persons were issued, covering communication, sports, tourism, social welfare access and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

 

The handicapped received assistance from the State in health care, rehabilitation and job seeking.

 

In order to best enforce the law on disabled persons, the Prime Minister has ratified a national project to support persons with disabilities from 2012-2020, demonstrating the Vietnamese Government’s commitment.

 

Country Director of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Gyorgy Sziraczki has highly valued Vietnam’s recent achievements and efforts in issuing the law and attaining ratification of the CRPD.

 

He suggested the government properly invest in improving the skills of teachers working with disabled students at all grades.

 

Relating agencies should offer assistance, both in technique and finance, to help enterprises and disabled workers experience a proper working environment, he added.
