HRC Summary - Uzbekistan

Disability Awareness in Action (DAA) reported that in spite of a strong legislative
framework for inclusion, social discrimination of persons with disabilities remains a significant obstacle to full inclusion. [...] Although 40 per cent of children with disabilities attend mainstream schools, obstacles in accessing educational opportunities and overcoming social prejudice persist for many families. Children with disabilities are too frequently placed in state institutions with only minimal educational opportunities. There is lack of appropriate infrastructure to ensure persons with disabilities physical access to public and private institutions. (point 4 in the summary)
