Advocates Help Bermuda Develop Disability Policy
October 26, 2006
HAMILTON, BERMUDA--Bermudans with disabilities are closer to having a unified national policy on disability rights, thanks to a group of advocates.
On Thursday, the panel of advocates presented Health Minister Patrice Minors with a list of recommendations to ensure accessibility, inclusion, equal opportunities, and participation of people with disabilities, the Royal Gazette reported.
Minors had formed the committee in January of 2005 specifically to provide input into the principles that would guide the new policy for Bermuda.
She said she hoped the committee would continue to inform her Ministry on the issues.
