Disabilities: A Handbook for Parliamentarians to the Parliamentary Committee for Health and Social Welfare

07 Jun 2013


The handbook aims to help parliaments adhere to the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities. It is both a call to action for the parliamentary leadership and a practical reference work that parliamentarians can turn to for information and guidance in tailoring legislation to address the challenges faced by people with disabilities. This handbook emphasizes the importance of human rights because they are so essential for the social inclusion of people with disabilities.

Publication of the Croatian version of the handbook was funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
