Posted 07/11-10 at 19.27

On October 27th, the Mozambican parliament unanimously ratified the CRPD and the Optional Protocol.

The Minister for Women's Affairs and Social Welfare, Yolanda Cintura, said the Convention would ‘... promote, protect and ensure the enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by people with disabilities".

She said the state must adopt legislative and administrative measures to ensure that disabled Mozambicans really enjoy the rights envisaged in the convention. In particular, measures were required to ensure that disabled women and girls could fully enjoy their human rights, and that disabled children could express themselves freely and in equality with other children.
