Mr. Abdullah Sumbal said that we have limited understanding about Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). Public sector has limited budget and has different set of priorities in which health and Special Education are given less importance. Utilization of this budget is done according to the developmental plans ahead but no proper strategy was present to focus PWDs. Chief Minister Punjab has taken special initiative this year to make policy frame work for special education which will help change the attitude of community towards PWDs. Private Sector has a focused approach but public private partnership is very important. HHRD’s National Conference is a great platform and effort towards PWDs rehabilitation. We will actively participate in this conference, which will help us understand what other NGOs are contributing towards PWDs. It will give us the opportunity to share our experiences, strategies and efforts towards PWD’s rehabilitation. I suggest that after the 18th amendment these seminars should not only be done in the federal capital but should also be replicated in provincial capitals.
