Ghana’s Approval

Ghana’s government has given approval for the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Persons With Disability (PWD) to finally pave the way for the implementation of the National Disability Act, 2006.  The ratification of the Convention will also allow its contents to be incorporated into the draft Legislative Instrument which aims to mainstream disability issues into national development such as enforcement of the law which stipulates that persons with disabilities have access to public places.”  Reinforcing this even further, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has decided to offer a second degree course in Disability Studies… another step forward in global recognition and support of the disability community.
