Disability Mainstreaming Status in Swaziland
In Swaziland, it was noted that the issues affecting Persons with disabilities were not being
prioritized by the Government.
This is so because of poor negative attitude of the government officials.
Even the UNCRPD was not yet domesticated hence making it difficult for the movement to hold government accountable.
Continuous advocacy by the Federation of
Organizations of Disabled People in Swaziland (FODSWA) – the official national affiliate of the SAFOD – was thus recommended to ensure government became disability sensitive.
It was further recommended that SAFOD should be able to support in advocating for the rights of Persons with disabilities in Swaziland
