Promoting Decent Work for People with Disabilities: A Path to Decent Work and Inclusive Societies


Since 2002, in more than seven countries in East and Southern Africa, Asia and the Pacific the ILO has partnered with Irish Aid to provide a path to decent work and more inclusive societies for people with disabilities. The ILO-Irish Aid Partnership Programme supports the development and reform of disability-related laws and policies and their effective implementation, and the inclusion of women and men with disabilities in mainstream programmes and services on vocational training, employment, entrepreneurship development and micro-finance. The following pictures illustrate how removing the barriers to services and opportunities help disabled people obtain decent work and a better life.

Promoting Decent Work for People with Disabilities: A Path to Decent Work and Inclusive Societies
ILO Convention No. 159 on the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Disabled Persons), 1983, the ILO Code of Practice on Managing Disability in the Workplace (2001), along with other international, regional and national initiatives, provide a framework for action to break down barriers to inclusion and to promote equal treatment and opportunity for disabled persons. The UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, which entered into force in May 2008, provides fresh impetus to ILO¿s disability mandate to promote equal opportunities for persons with disabilities in training and employment.

Promoting Decent Work for People with Disabilities: A Path to Decent Work and Inclusive Societies
In Tanzania, the Zanzibar Association of Disabled Persons (UWZ), with support provided by the ILO-Irish Partnership Programme, played a central role in shaping policy and legislation on disability, including the Persons with Disabilities (Rights and Privileges) Act 2006. This NGO promotes the rights and opportunities of people with disabilities through advocacy and awareness-raising, provides training, and leadership skills development.
