  • Disability policy for a Sweden that stands together

    Minister for Children, the Elderly and Gender Equality Åsa Regnér presented the Government’s new disability policy on 15 May. ‘National objective and direction for disability policy’ (Govt Bill 2016/17:188) is part of the Government’s work to achieve a fairer and more equitable society. The bill points out that disability policy is based on Sweden’s international human rights commitments. People’s differing needs and circumstances should not determine their opportunities for participation. The bill forms the foundation for the continued work. In the bill, the Government proposes a new national objective and a direction that will strengthen the conditions for taking the work forward.
