8th DISABILITY INCLUSION DIALOGUE
The Eighth Annual Disability Dialogue Series constitutes a significant convening of key stakeholders representing the private, public, and civil society sectors. This strategic event is purposefully designed to facilitate concrete actions that will serve as a catalyst for the comprehensive implementation of the Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities (Prohibition) Act in Nigeria. The aim of this event is to foster, nurture, and sustain cross-sector partnerships that are instrumental in the advancement of disability inclusion within Nigeria. The primary focus lies in channeling the collective energies of various stakeholders towards igniting progress and ensuring that the provisions of the Act translate into tangible outcomes that positively impact the lives of persons with disabilities across the nation.
