DISABILITY AND THE LAW

what is DISABILITY

 

Disability refers to any restriction or lack of ability (resulting from an impairment) to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered normal for a human being. Impairments associated with disabilities may be physical, mental or sensory motor impairment. Furthermore, multiple disabilities are often referred to as “two or more disabilities in the same person.” Having multiple disabilities does not necessarily mean the sum of various impairments as it can also be regarded as an interlinked network of conditions. Each element may affect each other in different, sometimes ambiguous, ways. 

In Republic Act (R.A.) 9442 “An act amending republic act no. 7277, otherwise known as the “Magna Carta for disabled persons, and for other purposes” and R.A. 7277 “An Act providing for the rehabilitation, self-development and self-reliance of disabled person and their integration into the mainstream of society and for other purposes.” Person with Disabilities rights, privileges and laws.

SUPPORTING PWD

 

According to Memorandum Circular No. 2009-37 Support For Community-Based Program For Children With Disabilities (CWD) and with the “United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) with its purpose to promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedom by all persons with disabilities and to promote respect for their inherent dignity. In UNCRPD, Article 3 General principles (h) Respect for the evolving capacities of children with disabilities and respect for the right of children with disabilities to preserve their identities and Article 7 Children with Disabilities (No. 1-3) and Article 23 (3) Respect for home and the family. States Parties shall ensure that children with disabilities have equal rights with respect to family life. With a view to realizing these rights, and to prevent concealment, abandonment, neglect and segregation of children with disabilities, States Parties shall undertake to provide early and comprehensive information, services and support to children with disabilities and their families. 

With the Philippine’s ratification of the UNCRPD, all National and Local Government Agencies are encouraged to promote disability rights and to include persons with disabilities in the development of their programs and services. All Local Chief Executives are also encouraged to ensure that CWD’s concerns are included in the Plans and Programs of their respective LCPCs, and maintain Database on CWDs. 

According to the 2010 Census of Population and Housing (2010 CPH), of the 92.1 million population in the country, 1,443 thousand persons (1.57%) had disability. Among the 17 regions, Region IV-A recorded the highest number of PWD at 193,000 followed by the National Capitol Region at 167,000. (https://psa.gov.ph/content/persons-disability-philippines-results-2010-census)

Education in the Philippines for Children with Disabilities

 

As of 2010, there were 375,952 recorded school-age children with disabilities in the Philippines, the National Census showed. However, only 1 in every 3 of these children is in school. For children with disabilities, schools are often physically inaccessible or unable to cater to their needs. In fact, only less than 3% of Filipino children with disabilities has access to education. 

According to the data gathered by the Department of Education on 2013, there are a total of 2,092 children with multiple disabilities in the Philippines and 149 of those are from Region IV-A.

Medical and Rehabilitation

 

Accessibility 

In Batas Pambansa Blg. 344 Accessibility Law “An act to enhance the mobility of disabled persons by requiring certain buildings, institutions, establishments, and public utilities to install facilities and other devices.” In Section 1 Rights of disabled persons to participate fully in the social life and the development of the societies in which they live and the enjoyment of the opportunities available to other citizens, no license or permit for the construction, repair or renovation of public and private buildings for public use, educational institutions, airports, sports and recreation centers and complexes, shopping centers or establishments, public parking spaces, workplaces, public utilities, shall be granted or issued unless the owner or operator thereof shall install and incorporate in such building, establishment, institution or public utility, such architectural facilities or structural features as shall reasonably enhance the mobility of disabled persons such as sidewalks, ramps, railings and the like.

Assistive Devices

The country is still in the process of collecting reliable statistics regarding the situation of disabilities, but according to the house- to house surveys performed in whole municipalities that are implementing the national Community-Based Rehabilitation Program (CBRP), between 6 and 7 % of the population had disabilities and at least 30% of this population required assistive devices (Country Profile on Disability, 2002). This assistive device includes wheelchairs, crutches, hearing aids, white cane, walker and walking stick which are needed in rehabilitation of person with multiple disabilities.

Medical and Professional Needs

  • The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) refers to disability as “an umbrella term covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. An impairment is a problem in body function or structure; an activity limitation is a difficulty encountered by an individual in executing a task or action; while a participation restriction is a problem experienced by an individual in involvement in life situations”. The ICF’s definition of disability denotes a negative interaction between a person (with a health condition) and his or her contextual factors (environmental and personal factors). A comprehensive approach  in interventions is then necessary for persons with disabilities  (PWDs) as it entails actions beyond the context of health, but more on helping them to overcome difficulties by removing environmental and social barriers (WHO, 2013).
