2022 - ongoing
As of 2020, Uganda has one of the most progressive laws for people with disabilities in the world. This states, among other things, that discrimination against people with disabilities is prohibited. Children with disabilities have the right to education and adults have the right to a job.
80% of all people with disabilities in the world live in developing countries, such as Uganda. Life can present many obstacles for people with disabilities. These challenges lead to social isolation, poverty and reduced quality of life. However, amid these obstacles, Uganda is gradually transforming to become more inclusive.
Uganda's evolving landscape is a testament to the commitment to disability inclusivity. While there is still much work to be done, the progress made thus far can be an example for other countries and is a glimmer of hope for people with disabilities.
