The program aims to promote the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and Vietnam’s Law on Persons with Disabilities.

It meant to improve the quality of the lives of people with disabilities and enable them to participate equally in social activities, build a barrier-free environment, ensure their legitimate rights and support them to make the best of themselves.

In 2026-2030, nearly 90 percent of persons with disabilities are expected to access medical services, while 90 percent of children with disabilities will be able to access education, the Vietnam Plus reported.
