Accra, July 23, GNA – The Ghana Blind Union (GBU) has organised a training programme for stakeholders in the disability sector on the African Disability Protocol (ADP).

The African Disability protocol builds on the rights enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and UN charter giving it an African relevance.

The GBU with the support of Sight Savers, Ghana, is leading a campaign to have Ghana ratify the African Disability Protocol and formed a National Advocacy committee to engage stakeholders to push for the ratification of the protocol

Mrs Getrude Oforiwaa Fefoame, a Gender and Disability rights advocate and a committee member of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability, took participants through the various articles in the ADP.

She noted that the ADP was more specific to the needs of persons with disability in Africa, saying, “It is simplified and highlights the human rights of Africans living with disability”.

Dr Peter Obeng Asamoah, Executive Director of the Ghana Blind Union, called on the government to as a matter of urgency ratify the ADP and practicalise it to support Ghanaians living with disability.
