Ensuring the future of all disabled Malaysians

TOMORROW is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Promoting the participation of persons with disabilities and their leadership: taking action on the 2030 Development Agenda”.

This year’s theme highlights the empowerment and inclusion of persons with impairment and/or chronic illness in all stages of planning and implementation in order to achieve all goals underlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (The goals are a global agenda for ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity; Malaysia has adopted them).

The message is simple and clear enough, but the question remains: Does the Malaysian government recognise the necessary steps needed to embody this aspiration, and is it willing to take them?
