There have been some positive changes in the last several years in Georgia regarding the rights of persons with disabilities, however, little has improved in the daily lives of many persons with disabilities (PWDs), who remain one of the most marginalized groups in the country. PWDs lack access to education, employment, health, and social services. The situation analysis on the rights of PWDs was conducted to support Georgia to deliver on its commitments under the CRPD. It serves as a baseline for the UNPRPD programme proposal and presents existing gaps in disability inclusion in Georgia.
The UNPRPD programme proposal aims to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities in Georgia. The programme outputs are based on the recommendations of the Situation Analysis to ensure more effective contributions towards disability inclusive policies, systems, and – for the implementation of the CRPD and achieving SDGs.
