Challenge

Many persons with disabilities of the Cochabamba region of Bolivia face severe difficulties in accessing quality rehabilitation services, due to a poor public health system. Assistive devices like prosthesis, wheelchairs and most of the specific medicines are only available at high prices in the private market. In addition, misinformation and stigma towards disability persists in certain sectors of the population and prevents them from fully participating in their communities.

Solution

Barriers in accessing rehabilitation will be reduced by delivering home rehabilitation sessions, combined with individual and family training. Assistive devices and medications not available in the public system will be provided to promote greater independence for people with disabilities. An awareness and training program will be carried out for public officials and organizations of people with disabilities, to deepen their rights knowledge and advocacy skills.

Long-Term Impact

Through the training program and constant advice, disability people organization will enhance their knowledge and skills, being able to advocate for their rights towards public authorities. Public officials and authorities will increase their capacity to develop adequate public policies. Community itself will lead its own development in an inclusive way.
