This profile summarizes the legal and social context affecting persons with disabilities in Uzbekistan. Data in this profile was collated through research on country reports, articles, and published papers from supporting partners; government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs); and associations. This brief first discusses disability statistics and then analyzes the constraints that persons with disabilities face in accessing health services, education, rehabilitation and assistive devices, employment, social infrastructure, and social protection. Next, the brief uses a variety of data, including from the Listening to Citizens of Uzbekistan project, to assess the impact of COVID-19 on persons with disabilities. To conclude, the brief describes the legal and policy frameworks that guide Uzbekistan’s commitments to persons with disabilities and identifies the main government and non-government actors and donors working on disability-related issues in the country.
