Plan of Action Training STAFF OF GOVT and NGOs Srey Chan Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation
Background The report (refer slide No.4) call us to recognize the extreme challenges that children and youth with intellectual disabilities and their families face every day. It has been said that poverty is a root cause of many disabilities and disability enhances poverty further. People started to talk about PWID issue in Cambodia Poverty, rather than landmines and political conflict, is now the leading cause of disability.
Lack of access to clean water sources, poor nutrition, and limited understanding of the importance of maternal and child healthcare services make young children especially vulnerable to disease and disability. As the needs of children and youth with intellectual disabilities are extremely varied and often unique to each child, services must be highly individualized and provided on a long-term basis. Relevant actors is the governmental, non-governmental, and private sectors must work together to ensure that these children receive the services they require. Far too many children in Cambodian suffer from disabilities that could have been easily prevented before, during, or after birth.
An estimated 4.7% (NIS-2004) of the total population of Cambodia is disabled For instance, in the Cambodia Country Study presented by ADB, a disability prevalence of 9.8% of the total population is posed as a conservative estimate. The causes of disability in Cambodia have changed drastically in the last few decades.
According to the 2004 CSES (Cambodia Socio- Economic Survey), a reported –29.5% of the population suffers from a visual difficulty, –23.5% from a mobility difficulty, –15.1% from a hearing difficulty and –1.2% persons with learning difficulties
