2013 National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week

July 17-23, 2013
Theme: “Building an Inclusive and Non-Handicapping Environment for Persons with Disabilities.”

The theme of this year’s NDPR Week celebration is “Building an Inclusive and Non-Handicapping Environment for Persons with Disabilities.” The theme was adopted to promote the principles and concepts relevant to disability inclusive development using the Incheon Strategy as its framework. The theme also extends to advocate for the mainstreaming of disability agenda in all government agencies, non-government organizations, civil society and the public in general. A sub-theme was also developed as part of the Department of Justice’s activity entitled “Patatagin ang Karapatan sa Katarungan ng Mga Taong May Kapansanan.” This was agreed on to give emphasis on having access to justice by persons with disabilities in order for them to be part of an inclusive society.
