The Alternative Report “Disability and Social Inclusion in Colombia” was written by Saldarriaga-Concha Foundation and endorsed by more than 300 persons with or without disabilities and social organizations. The Report accounts for the achievements and challenges for the full enjoyment of persons with disabilities human rights in Colombia; a task in which social organizations and the Colombian government must work together.
The Report was submitted to the UN CRPD Committee in Geneva (Switzerland) for the reviewing session for Colombia in August 2016. The Report is not only an international advocacy tool but also a national and local one. It provides useful information regarding where we are when it comes to disability and there should we go.
The Report encompasses an easy-to-read section that allows persons with intellectual disabilities to become an active part in advocacy processes. An accessible version for screen-reader software is also available.
