Disabilities, persons with

Persons with disabilities are individuals whose prospects of securing, retaining and advancing in suitable employment are substantially reduced as a result of a duly recognized physical or mental impairment. These persons should have access to suitable employment (including vocational guidance and training) and social integration, in conditions of full participation and equality.

Women with disabilities suffer from a double disadvantage, as they often find themselves discriminated against both because they are women and because they are disabled.

Equality of opportunity and treatment for male and female workers with disabilities should be respected and promoted. Special positive measures aimed at ensuring effective equality of opportunity and treatment for workers with disabilities should not be regarded as discriminatory against other workers.
