Persons with disabilities, through their resilience and networking, have chalked up some notable achievements. These include the creation of the Union of the Physically Impaired against Segregation (UPIAS), which in 1976 gave impetus to disability issues by the publishing of The Fundamental Principles of Disability. Another landmark networking event was the walkout of persons with disabilities from the Rehabilitation International (RI) conference in Winnipeg, Canada, in 1980 and the subsequent formation of Disability People International (DPI) . This move saw persons with disabilities challenging the dominance of health professionals in the disability agenda. The establishment of DPI led to other important world initiatives that challenged marginalization and oppression of persons with disabilities. These included a declaration by the United Nations of 1981 as the International Year of the Disabled Persons (IYPD). This was followed by the World Programme of Action Concerning Disabled Persons that outlined a universal approach to tackling and overcoming discrimination and creating equal opportunities throughout the world, and was followed by the proclamation of the Decade of Disabled Persons (1982–1992) that resulted in the formulation of the Standard Rules on Equalisation of Opportunities for People with Disabilities, and the creation of an increased number of organizations for persons with disabilities (DPOs).

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
