FORUM

          The high-level national disability forum in Dushanbe will celebrate the achievements and rights of people with disabilities. It aims at promoting action, partnership and accountability to deliver lasting change for people with disabilities in Tajikistan. The forum strives for real change through the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for persons with disabilities in line with the 2030 National Development Strategy of Tajikistan. The forum will also be an opportunity to see the progress towards Universal Health Coverage in Tajikistan.
In 2017, the Government of Tajikistan launched the multi-sectoral “National Programme on Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities for 2017-2020” (resolution number 455 of 28 October 2016). This multi-sectoral national programme provides a medium-term vision and roadmap regarding the rights of persons with disabilities, access to quality rehabilitation services and assistive products and supports UHC in Tajikistan up to 2020. In addition, Tajikistan has signed the United Nations Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities in early 2018 and started its implementation.
The forum will provide an opportunity to review the status of implementation of the “National Programme on Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities” and to assess the impact of the multi-sectoral national programme on the lives of people with disabilities, their families and caregivers. It will serve as an advocacy event and a platform for discussion involving government dignitaries and representatives of civil society, the United Nations and its entities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), other development partners, as well as the media. The forum will facilitate a commitment of leadership and staff from different ministries, agencies and committees and contribute to further strengthening the inclusive policy environment and the realization of the rights of persons with disabilities in Tajikistan.
The forum is built around following themes: health, education, social protection, economic empowerment, rehabilitation and assistive technology, accessible environment, as well as cross-cutting issues such as disability statistics and financing of the disability sector.
