Zayed Higher Organisation for People of Determination has launched the first phase of the Persons with Disabilities Database for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The first of its kind in the GCC, the database is characterized by its comprehensive data on every person of disability from birth until death. The aim is to create a thorough central database for all people of disabilities, to provide accurate and all-inclusive data that helps achieve the vision, plans, programs and initiatives of people of disabilities in the Emirate.
In addition, it benefits local and federal entities by providing them with indicators, such as the prevalence rate of disability, and helps them develop the services provided to people of determination as well.
The database comprises a number of phases, the first of which involves the establishment of Persons with Disabilities Database by defining the requirements, monitoring the data sources for Disability Database in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, and setting the electronic design of the database.
“The future plans for people of disabilities are not only limited to empowering them, but also helping them perform an active role in the economic and developmental aspects”. Said H.E Ali bin Qannas Al Ketbi, Chairman of the Department of Governmental Support.
