Implementaion of CRPD in El Salvador
Implementaion of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in El Salvador
United Nations: 5 Jan 2011
The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Optional Protocol thereto were signed by El Salvador on 30 March 2007 and ratified in accordance with constitutional procedure on 4 October 2007.
The preparation of this report provided an opportunity to examine and review State practices in the area of disability and also to highlight the lack of inclusive public policies. This situation poses considerable challenges for El Salvador which, with the aid of the recommendations to be made by the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities when it considers the report, will inform the formulation and implementation of public policies with a human rights emphasis that encourage real and effective citizen participation.
