Doctor in the House: Disability Days - Are We Getting Anywhere in Advancing Disability Rights?

Each year we celebrate a number of disability days, such as World Autism Awareness Day in April, International Day of Persons with Disabilities in December, and many more. These are commemorative days that are aimed at increasing the visibility of people with disabilities and their rights, and are often celebrated along with statements and promises to improve support and services for people with disabilities. Consultant paediatrician Dato’ Dr Amar Singh joins us to delve into whether real progress has been made for the community, and why we need more transparency and accountability from government ministries when it comes to policies, plans and services for people with disabilities.
