After the disappointing outcome of the 2010-2013 Campaign on Disability Inclusive Election, persons with disabilities’ organizations, their advocates and supporters rise up to renew their call for all stakeholders to brace up and start preparing for 2016 Disability Inclusive Election. The earlier initiatives to make the polling places accessible for voters with disabilities and senior citizens did not get remarkable impact but somehow, awareness on the issues of accessibility of schools, where majority of the polling places are, and provisions of support services for voters with disabilities became a pressing realization for concerned duty bearers. One of the milestones of the campaign is the passing of Republic Act 10366- authorizing the Commission on Election to establish precincts assigned to accessible polling places exclusively for persons with disabilities and senior citizens, which became effective on July 1, 2013.

As the lead agencies, the Commission and Election and the National Council on Disability Affairs are working closely in formulating the Implementing Rules and Regulations in consultation with leaders of persons with disabilities organizations and civil society organizations working on disability issues.

Promote Participation in Political Processes and enhanced decision making, is the second of the Ten Goals of the Decade of Make the Rights Real 2013-2022 proclaimed by the UN Economic and Social Council of Asia and the Pacific Region (UN-ESCAP) and adopted by 62 member countries, including the Philippines, during the High Level Meeting on the Final Review of the 2nd Asian and the Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons 2003-2012.

As a part of the observance of the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week, findings, results of initiatives and experiences of persons with disabilities during the May 13 Election will be presented during the Launching of 2016 Disability Inclusive Election Campaign on the 23rd of July 2013 at the Royal View Restaurant, SM Mall of Asia.

PNOY Greetings on the 2013 NDPR Week

July 16, 2013

              MALACANAN PALACE


My warmest greetings to the National Council on Disability Affairs and the Department of Justice, as you observe the 2013 National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week.

Enhancing the lives of persons with disabilities forms part of our national agenda to promote equal rights across all sectors. We are heartened by the leadership role that the Council assumes in this undertaking, as you help level the playing field and enable PWDs to seize available opportunities for their welfare and development. This weeklong celebration of the NCDA gains further relevance as we move forward in this period or revitalization, when the empowerment of all citizens is given priority, that they may rise to the challenge of nation-building: May you heighten public awareness on disability-relevant issues and concerns, and encourage everyone to be responsible for the mainstreamed advancement of Filipinos with disabilities.

Our administration is dedicated to serving the needs of our countrymen, regardless of gender, social status, religion, and physical condition. But these initiatives would be more meaningful if all sectors of society commit to acceptance and understanding, by letting go of the negative, discriminiating attitudes towards persons with disabilities. Let us uplift their condition, and bear in mind that their success is proof positive of our solidarity as a nation, and thus takes us closer to our vision of an equitably progressive Philippines.

I wish you an engaging, productive week.

2013 National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week

July 1, 2013

2013 National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week

July 17-23, 2013

 Project Brief



For too long, inclusion and involvement of people with disabilities have not been the core concerns of any country’s development efforts.  However, redressing this omission through more inclusive development practices will help to achieve better equity for people with disabilities.

The goal of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (uncrpd) and the Incheon Strategy to Make the Right Real for persons with disabilities in Asia and the Pacific is the realization of a “society for all.”   An inclusive society for all  accommodates diversity of people, their needs, abilities and aspirations.  It is a society that creates an enabling environment where all persons with or without disability realize their basic rights and fundamental freedoms and live a meaningful life

The National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA) being the focal point of the government on disability concerns plays a big role in promoting and sustaining the efforts along this line.


To strengthen the advocacy efforts in promoting the rights of persons with disabilities is one of the strategies adopted by NCDA to increase public awareness.




As a State policy enshrined in Proclamation No. 1870 (1979), as amended by Proclamation No. 361 (2000) and Administrative Order No. 35 (2002), the NDPR Week is being commemorated annually every July 17-23, that aims primarily to stimulate public awareness on the issues and problems of disability, thereby encouraging every citizen of the country to take active responsibility in the upliftment of the economic and social conditions of PWDs of our society. It culminates on the birthdate of Apolinario Mabini, the “Sublime Paralytic,” whose bravery and heroic acts during the Philippine Revolution of 1896 has greatly influenced his compatriots in fighting against the Spanish colonization.


The NDPR Week celebration has involved the government and the private sectors, the   civil society organizations and the sector of persons with disabilities.


Administrative Order No. 35 was issued on May 3, 2002 by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo directing “all heads of departments, bureaus, agencies, government-owned and/or controlled corporations (GOCCs), State universities/Colleges and schools, and other government agencies/instrumentalities to promote and conduct relevant activities in the annual celebration of the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week…”.  Moreover, it requires the mass media and the entire citizenry to extend their wholehearted support and cooperation by conducting specific programs for the celebration.   Most significantly, the Administrative Order directs all government agencies to allocate an amount equivalent to but not less than one percent (1%) of their total budget for the year as stipulated in the General Appropriations Act.  The Administrative Order repealed and modified accordingly previous issuances related to the celebration of NDPR Week.




The observance of NDPR Week has multi-faceted objectives as follows:


  • To stimulate public awareness on disability issues and concerns that will strengthen the involvement of the different government and non-governmental organizations including cause-oriented groups, civil society, self-help groups of persons with disabilities, the academe, professional groups and societies, local government units, business sector, the media and other entities of the society;


  • To serve as the vehicle of information for programs being implemented by government agencies and organizations of and for persons with disabilities that adhere to the promotion of the inherent rights and concerns of persons with disabilities;


  • To encourage every Filipino citizen to take active responsibility in the upliftment of the economic and social conditions of persons with disabilities in our society, thereby encouraging them to take pro-active roles in nation-building;


  • To generate full media support on the celebration and other disability-related issues and concerns that affect persons with disabilities and their families; and


  • To develop and strengthen cooperation and partnership between and among the various sectors of the Philippine society for better understanding of disability issues and concerns.




For this year’s celebration it is proposed that the NWC that will be organized by NCDA will be chaired by the Department of Justice.   DOJ will be the presiding officer of all committee meetings and the lead event organizer.




The theme of this year’s NDPR Week celebration is “Building an Inclusive and Non-Handicapping Environment for Persons with Disabilities.”   The theme was adopted to promote the principles and concepts relevant to disability inclusive development using the Incheon Strategy as its framework.  The theme also extends to advocate for the mainstreaming of disability agenda in all government agencies, non-government organizations, civil society and the public in general.

A sub-theme was also developed as part of the Department of Justice’s activity entitled “Patatagin ang Karapatan sa Katarungan ng Mga Taong May Kapansanan.”   This was agreed on to give emphasis on having access to justice by persons with disabilities in order for them to be part of an inclusive society.
