The National Policy on Care for People with Disabilities outlines the national response to the demand for a coordinated delivery of service and care for people with disabilities in Botswana. It describes the role of various government ministries, the private sector, non-governmental and local organisations, community leaders and members, and persons with disabilities in the national response. The national policy forms the basis on which a national strategic plan will be developed. Within the national strategic plan, different ministries and organisations will formulate their sectoral action plans and projects for implementation.
