Description

El Plan del Decenio de las Américas tiene como objetivo difundir las normativas y legislaciones nacionales y del contexto internacional que promueven los derechos de las personas con discapacidad, con el propósito de darlas a conocer para su aplicación por todos los sectores de la sociedad. Fue promulgado por la Presidencia de la República y el Consejo Nacional sobre Discapacidad de la República Dominicana en 2006.

Este plan de acción constituye un punto de referencia para la planificación de las acciones que el país debe llevar a cabo en el sector de la discapacidad.

El plan es el resultado de un proceso participativo que involucra diferentes partes interesadas, como profesionales, miembros de la sociedad civil, a las personas con discapacidad y las agencias internacionales de desarrollo.

It has four main goals, namely: to assure full rights and equality of opportunities to persons with disability; to guarantee the economic independence of persons with disabilities; to eliminate all forms of discrimination; to guarantee that persons with disabilities can participate in the elaboration and implementation of public policies.
