  • Access audit exposes pathetic state of access in Orissa
    “The issue of access is a human rights concern and the onus of ensuring and safeguarding it rests on the Government. Access laws, as stipulated in the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995, and other statutes must be implemented to allow equal participation and empowerment of disabled people” says Orissa-based non-governmental organisation Swabhiman on the basis of an access audit conducted by it.

  • Adolescents, youth with disabilities unable to access programmes targeting sexuality: Renu Addlakha
    “A significant group of adolescents and youth with disabilities are not able to access programmes targeting sexuality and reproductive health because they do not address the specific concerns of this socially marginalised group. In order to ensure that all citizens of the country are guaranteed the right to health, it is imperative that the concerns of youth with disabilities are mainstreamed into government health and population policies,” says Dr. Renu Addlakha, Fellow for Leadership Development, MacArthur Foundation in India, in conversation with Dr. Meenu Bhambhani and Parvinder Singh.
