Persons with Disabilities are being encouraged to register with the NCD.

Persons living with Disabilities are being encouraged to register with the National Commission on Disability to ensure they receive the necessary public assistance.

According to the Commission based on the last census almost seven percent of the population suffers from a disability of some sort which represents 50 thousand individuals.
Administrator of the Commission Beverly Pile believes registration is important since it would allow the organisation to keep a proper record of persons who are in need special assistance.
The National Commission on Disability is now in the process of conducting a series of workshops with various stakeholders to educate them about the Persons with Disability Act.
The Act aims to provide certain rights to persons with disabilities in area such as health and education to protect them from being discriminated against on the basis of their disability.
