WP-2012-01: Employment Mainstreaming of Workers with Disability

The sector of people with disability continues to grow. It was reported that about 15 percent of the world’s population live with some form of disability. In the Philippines, there are almost one (1) million persons with disability (PWDs). Studies revealed that the sector are considered the most marginalized and economically disadvantaged groups. Their impairment makes them vulnerable to different social and economic barriers, and negative attitudes by the abled members of the society. For the past decades, the Philippine government has been taking efforts to integrate PWDs into the mainstream of society. However, despite various efforts undertaken for workers with disabilities, they remain inadequate. Many PWDs continue to experience work discriminations, unequal rights, and limited opportunities. They are hardly equipped for competitive and gainful long-term employment.
