Need to Enable the Disabled

Need to Enable the Disabled

There are one billion people living with disability in the world, said Sadollah Nasiri Gheydari, secretary-general of the National Commission for UNESCO.
“Around 11.5 million in Iran or 15% of the population suffer from some kind of disability,” he said at a conference on Tuesday at the UNESCO office in Tehran, IRNA reported.
The confab discussed national policies and plans to employ information and communication technologies (ICT) in empowering the disabled and the need to keep them updated.
“Nearly 90% of disabled children across the world are out of school due to lack of access to proper equipment,” and this goes against international conventions, he said. 
Iran’s Comprehensive Law on Protection of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was adopted in 2004.
