Law for the promotion of the personal autonomy of PWD
The Law for the Promotion of Personal Autonomy of Persons with Disabilities, approved in Costa Rica in 2016, provides the right to a personal assistant. This is requested through the Public Agency for the Disabled, and in 2022 there were more than 200 people receiving this service.
This session is part of the Zero Project Conference 2023 (ZeroCon23) — organized by the Zero Project, and broadcast from the United Nations Office at Vienna, Austria.
