Vietnam has developed a strong legal framework that guarantees people with disabilities the right to participate in society. However, implementation of these policies remains inconsistent. Thus, many people with disabilities face challenges in exercising their rights and accessing services at the local level. Effective national coordination and rehabilitative services are crucial to achieving these important goals. The project assists Vietnamese partners at the national level and in Tay Ninh, Binh Phuoc, and Dong Nai provinces to address these issues.
