The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was ratified in 2008 by the Government of Rwanda but awareness of rights remains low, both amongst persons with disability and public duty-bearers. Cases of stigma and discrimination, and even abuse and neglect, continue to be discovered particularly amongst children with disabilities, persons with intellectual disabilities and persons with psycho-social disabilities.
