Tunisia ratified the International Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2008. However, people with disabilities are still insufficiently taken into account when developing public policies. HI carries out research to better understand the prevalence of disability and social participation for people with disabilities' access to different services in Tunisia.
HI's economic inclusion projects aim to create better employment opportunities for people with disabilities, in particular in sectors which are developing, and which are respectful of the environment.
The organisation also aims to improve access to education for children and young people with disabilities. It therefore raises the awareness and trains parents, schools and local authorities on the theme of disability.
