The Rights of Persons with Disabilities

DTP is integrating content on the rights of persons with disabilities into its capacity building programs, encourages program applications from disabled peoples organisations (DPOs), considers disability in relation to access to training program venues and accommodation and in the preparation of training materials.  DTP is actively working with DPOs on developing a capacity building program for advocates focussed on promoting and implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
