Six Pillars of Victim Assistance
The six pillars of assistance to Landmines victims are : emergency and continuing healthcare; physical rehabilitation; psychological and psycho-social support; economic inclusion; data collection; laws, regulations and policies.
Since 2009, progress was recorded in:
- Improving the understanding of the needs of victims of landmines and victims of other explosive remnants of war (ERW)
- Coordinating and planning measures to better address those needs
- Linking victim assistance coordination with multisectoral coordination mechanisms, such as those for disability and development
- Informing mine/ERW victims about existing programs and services and, in some cases, facilitating their access to available services
- Strengthening legal frameworks to promote the rights of victims, including by advancing the right to physical accessibility for persons with disabilities
Rights of persons wit disability
There are approximately one billion people with disabilities in the world, those whom live in developing countries live in extreme poverty. However Education, livelihood, and integration are the rights that belong to everyone, including persons with disabilities in developing countries.
