Qatar affirms pledge to guarantee equal rights to disabled people


Nora Ibrahim Al Sada, second secretary of Qatar’s permanent mission to the United Nations Office at Geneva,

recently affirmed Qatar’s guarantee of non-discrimination against persons with disabilities during the 34th session of the UN Human Rights Council.



Al Sada said equality is a fundamental pillar of Qatari society.

“The principle of equality and non-discrimination is a key element in all human rights conventions, and the basis for the enjoying of all rights and freedoms,” Al Sada said.

Qatari law guarantees equal rights and access to health care and education for persons with disabilities. Schools in the country have been equipped with facilities to provide the proper environment for students with disabilities.

Additionally, people with disabilities in Qatar have the right to work, housing and social security.

Al Sada said that to implement and ensure the principle of equality and non-discrimination, Qatar enshrined protections in its constitution and national laws.

Qatar’s national laws include provisions for persons with disabilities to receive full access to public services.
