Bishkek, September 25 - During the seminar on September 23-25 a small interdepartmental group on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities developed a project of the National Program "Accessible Country" in the Kyrgyz Republic for 2021-40. Specialists from the Ministries of Labor and Social Development, Finance, Health, Justice, Education, Transport and Roads, representatives of the State Agency for Architecture, Construction and Housing and Communal Agency, and independent experts worked on the development of the country document.

After ratification in 2019, a plan of priority measures for three years was developed in collaboration with experts financial calculation was carried out on how much financial resources from the state budget will be required for implementation and realization.
Further, the National Program will be submitted to the government for approval, and then implementation will begin by all stakeholders.
