Presenting better images of disability


IT is encouraging to note that the media (print, broadcast and Internet) in Malaysia is giving more attention to disability issues. With the forthcoming International Day of Persons with Disabilities (Dec 3), it is a good time to assess the impact of such efforts, in particular the depiction of disability through images.

The theme of the observance for 2019, “Promoting the participation of persons with disabilities and their leadership: taking action on the 2030 Development Agenda”, is concerned with promoting the participation and leadership of persons with disabilities (PwDs).
