The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities making priority issues of persons with disabilities in the world raises the importance of addressing these issues at the level of our country.

NGOs of People with disabilities are the institution that expresses the needs of its members through directly being implemented to the policy for people with disabilities.

Developing integrated civilized society, we, the leaders of national associations of people with disabilities, have guided the overall primary strategic goal of achieving full participation of people with disabilities in social life and the timely inclusion of all issues related to the issues people with disabilities in all areas of state activity.

At this stage it is very important perceived joint efforts of all NGOs for constructive and efficient cooperation in order to take decisions aimed at ensuring respect for the rights and lawful interests of people with disabilities.

Holding protests, strikes, hunger strikes - is unconstructive methods for solving problems of people with disabilities. Therefore, we appeal to the leaders of all associations with the proposal to create solidarity and friendly relations in the society to deal with conflicts and their prevention by negotiation and compromise, the formation mechanisms of social partnership with government and civil society on the rights of people with disabilities.
