Living with Disability In Mongolia: Progress Toward Inclusion

Publication | December 2019

This report presents data about the current living conditions and challenges faced by persons with disabilities in Mongolia. Policy implications are identified based on the country's Law on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The last decade has seen increased recognition of the rights of persons with disabilities (PWDs) in Mongolia and the rest of the world. Yet, there is a call to put these rights into practice. This report presents data and information about the current living conditions and challenges faced by persons with disabilities in Mongolia. It summarizes the latest findings from a 5-year project of the Asian Development Bank and the Government of Mongolia aiming to address the need for community-based services and support for PWDs. Key policy implications are identified for the project, which builds on the Law on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and covers the period 2018–2022.
