Disability is a very broad term since it includes mental health which many do not consider a problem. When you look at it, the population of people living with disabilities is larger than perceived.
To start with, appropriate sensitization from as early as preschool stage on the types of disabilities and how to live with people with disabilities should be provided.
Secondly, infrastructures and facilities that are easily accessible to persons with disabilities should be provided. These include, accessible toilets, special spaces in public transport, accessible alternatives in buildings with staircases….etc
Thirdly, besides quality education, equity should be put in place when providing job opportunities to persons living with disabilities. Many of them are denied opportunities to quality education and employment.
Lastly, the society and persons living with disabilities should be educated on their rights and the consequences of violating those rights to avoid cases of all forms of abuse, neglect, and mistreatment.
