UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD)

Singapore signed the UNCRPD on 30 November 2012, and ratified the Convention on 18 July 2013.

Singapore is committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities have the same rights as everybody else and assumes the responsibility of protecting the interests of persons with disabilities in areas highlighted within the agreement.

On 22 March 2013, NCSS launched the “We are Able!” campaign, to raise awareness about the UNCRPD and Enabling Masterplan. It engages the community in working towards an inclusive society for persons with disabilities in the community.
