However, there is a general lack of proper information and awareness about disability. Municipalities, for example, lack the know-how needed to create disabled-friendly and accessible urban environments through targeted actions and initiatives.
As it comes from the above, people with disabilities face discrimination on a daily basis and experience: social exclusion, poverty, income inequalities, limited labor market choices, limited access to healthcare, justice, education and training.
It is of high value for them their access to the right of being active and equal members of the society by having as much as possible employment opportunities and access to cultural & social life.
