Without the disability card, people with disabilities are severely limited. Though the exercise of their rights shouldn't be conditioned by a document, Bolivian public institutions show them little attention and they lack access to healthcare and other social protections. The scant information about the needs of this vulnerable group feeds stereotypes that generate discrimination and social exclusion. Remote communities and insufficient economic resources impede the process of acquiring the card
Municipal Disability Care Units will identify people with disability of municipalities, Tukuy Pacha will select those in vulnerable conditions who can't complete the process alone. Then, they will be supported through the legal procedure; processing documents like ID, birth certificates, genetic tests, neurological, psychiatric, physiological, autistic spectrum disorder and/or traumatological reports. Then, they will receive the card from the Disability Unit of the Departmental Social Management
People with disabilities will receive their disability card, creating a sustainable positive impact by solving accessibility problems to things like protected income, free legal documents, or preferential healthcare treatment. Besides, the people identified will form an official database of the Municipal Unit of Disability Attention, making their reality visible but also publicizing their needs and helping to generate a solid organization plan for those with disabilities nearby.
