Joint press conference by Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC, Ádám Kósa and Werner Kuhn, Members of the EP, on the European Disability Strategy

Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, Ádám Kósa and Werner Kuhn, Members of the EP, gave a joint press conference on the European Disability Strategy.
About 80 million people living in the EU had a mild to severe disability. The physical obstacles they faced, like gaining access to a school or work place, left them vulnerable to social exclusion. Lower employment and education levels meant the poverty rate for those with disabilities was 70% higher than the average.
The European Disability Strategy aimed to make it easier for people with disabilities to go about their daily lives like everyone else - and enjoy their rights as an EU citizen. It would ensure access to EU funding, raise public awareness about disability, and encourage member governments to work together in removing obstacles to inclusion. It would also fulfil the EU's commitment to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which the bloc and its member countries signed in 2007.
