Promoting mainstream policies and services for people with disabilities in Ukraine

Persons with disabilities constitute one of the largest vulnerable groups in Ukraine, and according to recent estimates, may represent as high as 15% of the total population. Over the past years, the Government of Ukraine became part to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), signed the Optional Protocol and adopted important legislations protecting the rights of the disabled persons. However, the implementation of such laws remains poor and the persons with disabilities still face inaccessible environments and continue to be excluded from various spheres of life.

The United Nations System in Ukraine has an extensive experience in working on disability issues, which is among priority areas of the UN-the Government of Ukraine Partnership Framework for 2012-2016. The proposed joint programme, developed by UNDP, UNICEF, ILO and WHO in cooperation with the Government and Civil Society organizations in Ukraine, aims to promote the application of accessibility and universal design standards as enablers of inclusion and participation of the persons with disabilities. It focuses on existing barriers that prevent or limit equal access to services and facilities intended for the general public. The programme will work at sub-national (Kharkiv Oblast) and national levels, and will support comprehensive capacity development and awareness raising efforts. It will use a mix of mainstream and targeted approaches to directly benefit persons with disabilities through improved services and indirectly, by making the surrounding environment more accessible and disability-friendly.
