AGENDA I (2011 - 2013)

logo ppci PPDI

In 2010, in collaboration with Disabled People International Asia Pacific (DPI/AP), PPDI organized a regional conference on ASEAN and persons with disabilities, culminating in The Jakarta Declaration, which offered initial recommendations for regional action. Additionally, PPDI engages in advocacy on the political rights of persons with disabilities in national elections. Since 2005, this has included efforts leading to the ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in December 2011.

As a leading disabled person’s organization (DPO) in Indonesia, PPDI conducted its second annual conference in July 2012. The conference invited delegates from various DPOs across Indonesia to gather for a twoday meeting. During this event, nine recommendations were produced that are to be submitted to the Indonesian government. Among the recommendations are the establishment of a watch group to monitor the implementation of the CRPD and conducting more public outreach to introduce the Convention at the grassroots level.

In 2013, PPDI led a legal working group to implement CRPD into local law, which resulted in the acceptance of the Bill on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities by the House of Parliament. The Bill is to be passed into local law after the General Assembly meeting in 2015.

MCD functions as a consultative and coordinating body for disability organisations at the national level. Currently, MCD has seven disability organisations as members. Together, this represents some 10,000 persons with disabilities throughout Malaysia. The organisation has played a crucial role in advocating for the 2008 Persons with Disabilities Act and also in urging the government to ratify the CRPD. Besides that, MCD also succeeded in submitting budgeting recommendations to the government to have a special allocation for persons with disabilities in local and national annual plans. As persons with disabilities in Malaysia still face barriers in the public sphere, including access to hotels and other public buildings, MCD conducted training for its members and carried out an access audit of selected hotels in Kuala Lumpur. At the regional level, the MCD Chairman served as the Vice-Chairman of DPI AP for three terms from 2004-2010.

Disabilities ThailandDTH (Formerly CDPT)

Disabilities Thailand (DTH) was formed on 20 October 1983 from the inspiration of a small group of persons with disabilities following the 1982 Disabled People’s International Assembly in Singapore. The group understood that persons with disabilities in Thailand have been fighting for their rights for long time. Until then, there had been little change and the movement was not united. Therefore, they saw the need to form a single organization across disabilities. The organization to the date consists of: Thailand Association of the Blind, National Association of The Deaf, Association of the Physically Handicapped of Thailand, Association for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities of Thailand, Association for the Mentally Ill and The Association of Parents for Thai Persons with Autism. DTH is a focal point to the Government on matters relating to disabilities, including being a part of the National Coordination Committee on Disabilities of which the Thai Prime Minister is a chairman. The goals of this organization are to develop networking and collaboration among DPOs and other stakeholders, to promote and protect the rights of persons with disabilities, to empower persons with disabilities so they become agents of change, and to raise awareness of the public and the government on the rights of persons with disabilities. DTH is an active member and a partner of DPI AP working in Thailand.
